Orders of the Day — Road Haulage Regulations (Compensation Case)

Part of the debate – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 25th July 1952.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Braithwaite:

My hon. Friend is entitled to his disappointment. The difficulty is that the Socialist Act of 1947 has left the Minister completely helpless to intervene in these matters. All that can be done is for us to come to this Box and state what is the situation under the Regulations which were made before we came into office. This is a sad example of the tyranny of Socialism. I am merely here to expound what has happened. The remedy, as my hon. Friend knows, is not in my hands.
