§ 50. Mr. GODFREY LOCKER-LAMPSON
asked whether, in view of the large meetings of friendly societies which are to take place all over the country during the Whitsuntide recess, the Prime Minister will give some indication of the amendments which the Government propose to introduce into the National Insurance Act, in order that these conferences may have an opportunity of expressing their opinions on the general effectiveness of the amending Bill?
§ 51. Mr. G. LOCKER-LAMPSON
asked whether the Government intend to apply the machinery of the closure and guillotine to the new National Insurance Act Amending Bill?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
This question is obviously premature, and I can make no statement on the subject.
§ Mr. G. LOCKER-LAMPSON
Before the right hon. Gentleman makes up his 2206 mind, may I ask whether it would be possible for him to take the opinion of the friendly societies in the matter?
