Clause 14. — (Enforcement of Certain Enactments and Regulations.)

Part of Orders of the Day — FOOD AND DRUGS AMENDMENT BILL [Lords] – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 3rd November 1954.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Amory:

I think that 14 days is sufficient for the purpose, and that were we to extend the time I am doubtful whether it would be fair to the trader concerned to be kept hanging about too long. Mine is a quick working Department, and I think that 14 days will suffice.

As for the second Amendment, I think it possible that there may be something in what my hon. Friend has said, and that it would be a good plan if we looked into it. If my hon. Friend is satisfied with what I have said about his first Amendment, and also with my assurance that I will look into the point raised in his second Amendment, I hope that he will agree to withdraw the Amendment.
