§ 71. Mr. O'GRADY
asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the hardship inflicted upon poor people by the operation of the hire purchase system of furniture, as disclosed repeatedly in the cases tried in the police courts, he will now state whether a Select Committee of this House will be appointed to investigate with a view of recommending legislation on this matter?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. McKenna)
I will consider the possibility of moving for the appointment of a Select Committee of this House to inquire into this matter.
§ Mr. McKENNA
Yes, I am aware of that; but the hon. Member will see that the question is a very complicated one.
