§ 42. Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
asked the Prime Minister whether he has yet had time to consider the proposal that the Law, Officers of the Crown should, for the benefit of the commercial community, publish their considered opinion as to the position of contracts with aliens entered into before the War began and the legal definition of which cannot be decided by the Courts until the War is over?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
In normal circumstances I could not consider any such suggestion, but under existing conditions, though there are serious practical difficulties in the way of its adoption, it is being carefully considered.
§ Sir J. D. REES
Has the Prime Minister noted that the last decision of this subject is sixty years old?
