HC Deb 09 January 1913 vol 46 cc1378-9
94. Mr. O'GRADY

asked the Home Secretary whether, having regard to the hard ships inflicted upon poor people by the furniture hire-purchase system, as evidenced by the cases of recent dates in the Law Courts, he will agree to the appointment of a Select Committee of this House to inquire into this method of business with a view to recommending future legislation on the matter?


I am afraid it is too late in the Session to appoint a Select Committee on this important subject, but I shall be glad if my hon. Friend will repeat his question early next Session.
