HC Deb 21 June 1905 vol 147 c1211

To ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he is now in a position to state when he proposes to introduce the measure, promised in His Majesty's Speech from the Throne, to raise the status of the Local Government Board and the Board of Trade, and to create a Minister of Commerce.

(Answered by Mr. A. J. Balfour.) I am afraid I cannot at present mention a day for the introduction of this measure; but due notice will be given.
