Alert me about debates like this
asked the President of the Board of Trade what alterations in procedure under the Safeguarding of Industries Act he contemplates to secure speedier decisions?
No, Sir. It is, however, my intention at an early date, when the Reports of the Committees now sitting have been received, to review the position with a view to seeing what alterations, if any, can usefully be made in the procedure under the Act.
Will that be done by amending legislation introduced in this House?
That entirely depends upon whether it will be necessary to do anything, and, if so, what.
Will that include the suspension of the Act?
That had not occurred to me
But the right hon. Gentleman admits that the present procedure is unsatisfactory?
Not at all.
