I am not sure that they would speak with one voice if I were to receive them. I have gone into this matter exceedingly carefully. Two deputations from the check traders have been received by my hon. and gallant Friend the Parliamentary Secretary, who has also gone into the matter carefully, and my officials have received a number of representations, and I think I really do know all the facts, and I do not feel there would be any advantage in my receiving any further' deputation on the subject, but, naturally, I am always very glad to see hon. Members of this House who wish to consult me.
