The Departmental Committee s terms of reference will be:
To consider the operations commonly known as share-pushing and share-hawking and similar activities and to report what, if any, action is desirable.
I am glad to say that Sir Archibald Bodkin, formerly Director of Public Prosecutions, has accepted my invitation to be Chairman of the Committee. With my hon. Friend's permission, I will circulate a list of members of the Committee in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
Can the right hon. Gentleman assure the House that companies registered under the Industrial and Provident Societies Acts will come under the review of this committee?
