HC Deb 27 November 1912 vol 44 cc1254-5
46. Viscount WOLMER

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department recently received a deputation from the National Asylum Workers' Union in favour of the Asylum Workers (Employment, Pensions, and Superannuation) Bill, and that he indicated that the Bill, if somewhat modified, would have the support of the Government; and whether, in view of these circumstances, he can see his way to give facilities for the passage of this Bill this Session?


I understand from my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary for the Home Department that he intimated in March last that if certain Amendments were accepted the Government would be prepared to give the Bill official support in its later stages. As regards the second part of the question, I fear that facilities cannot be given this Session.


Did not the Government make the same pledge about the Mental Deficiency Bill?
