Oral Answers to Questions — Safeguarding of Industries Act. – in the House of Commons on 17th July 1922.
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.
That entirely depends upon whether it will be necessary to do anything, and, if so, what.
Will that include the suspension of the Act?
But the right hon. Gentleman admits that the present procedure is unsatisfactory?
