§ 48. Mr. SWIFT MacNEILL
asked the Prime Minister whether he can now say at what time the Second Reading of the Sir Stuart Montagu Samuel Indemnity Bill will be moved; and whether sufficient time will be given for a discussion of the relative positions as affecting the Parliamentary status of Government contractors who are members of private firms and of Government contractors who are directors of incorporated trading companies contracting with Government Departments in their corporate capacity?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I regret that the communications which have taken 1743 place on this subject have not resulted in an agreement; and in the absence of agreement, I fear it is impossible to proceed further with this Bill.
Mr. SWIFT MacNElLL
Does the right hon. Gentleman not know that there is great disappointment amongst some of us who wished to say a few words about company directors?
