First Schedule. — (Constitution, officers and proceedings of the Commission.) (20 Apr 1943)

Sir Douglas Hacking: I beg to move, as an Amendment to the proposed Amendment, in line 1, after "may," to insert: after such consultation as he thinks necessary with organisations appearing to him to represent employers and workers or other interests concerned.

First Schedule. — (Constitution, officers and proceedings of the Commission.) (20 Apr 1943)

Sir Douglas Hacking: I am always ready to respond to an appeal, but I am not particularly happy about the Minister's reply.

Title (20 Apr 1943)

Sir Douglas Hacking: I beg to move, in page 1, line 4, to leave out "efficiency," and to insert "general improvement." I think that at last there is a little hope that my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour will accept an Amendment which has been moved by me.

Title (20 Apr 1943)

Sir Douglas Hacking: There is a very obvious omission, for which I am sure someone else than my right hon. Friend will accept full responsibility.

It is only right that those words should appear in the long Title of the Bill.
