In the case to which my hon. Friend refers, the decision of the Court of first instance was to the effect that the Crown is entitled to recover certain moneys claimed to be due from the Wilts United Dairies, Limited, in respect of charges made by the Ministry of Food on licences to export milk from one area to another. This decision has been reversed by the Court of Appeal, and an appeal to the House of Lords has been lodged. If Judgment be given by the House of Lords against the Crown, the Government will bring in a Bill to legalise their procedure in cases of this nature during the period of control.
