HC Deb 20 August 1909 vol 9 c1672

As regards the first point we have either obtained the Royal assent, or practically passed through both Houses of Parliament so that they are ready for Royal assent, 15 measures. They include:

and two of the three Bills introduced for the purpose of providing Government Departments—in this particular instance the Board of Trade and the Department of Agriculture—with additional Parliamentary assistance. The only one of these 15 measures which still needs consideration in either House is the

Trawling in Prohibited Areas (Prevention Bill),

as to which it is still necessary to dispose of the Lords' Amendments. So much for what has actually been achieved.
