Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance. – in the House of Commons on 24th November 1931.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether His Majesty's Government will abolish forthwith the organisation which was recently established under Part III of the Finance Act, 1931?
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply that I gave on the 19th November to the hon. and gallant Member for Chelmsford (Sir V Henderson).
Is not my right hon. Friend aware that he has power to suspend forthwith the working of this part of the Act, and will he not, in view of the pledges as to economy that he gave before the last General Election, exercise that power forthwith?
I have already said that I will make a statement on the subject before the House rises.
Is not this a Measure which the Prime Minister and other Members of the Government think a very good one?
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can now make any statement as to the policy of the Government with respect to Part III of the Finance Act, 1931?
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply that I gave on the 19th November to the hon. and gallant Member for Dulwich (Sir F. Hall). I can as yet add nothing to that reply.
Will my right hon. Friend be good enough to tell me when I can put this question down in the hope of getting a reply?
I repeat that I hope to make a statement on the subject before the House rises.
