HC Deb 24 June 1918 vol 107 c858

Resolution reported, "That it is expedient to authorise the payment, out of moneys to be provided by Parliament, of such further expenses as the Minister of Labour may be authorised to incur under any Act of the present Session to amend the Trade Boards Act, 1909, provided that the sum to be expended shall not exceed £1,000 in any one year."

The remaining Orders were read, and postponed.

Whereupon Mr. DEPUTY-SPEAKER (Sir D. Maclean), pursuant to the Order of the House of the 13th February, proposed "That this House do now adjourn."


May I again ask when we shall be able to get a copy of Mr. Justice Atkin's Report? I notice that on Friday the Paper was formally laid, but there is no information yet, at either the Vote Office or the Library, as to when this Report is coming forward. May I ask when we shall be able to get a copy, and may I appeal that at least one day shall be allowed to intervene before the Resolution is actually moved?

Lord EDMUND TALBOT (Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury)

Like the hon. Member, I am asking daily when we are going to get this Report printed, but as yet, I am sorry to say, I have not been able to succeed. I will endeavour to give him the time for which he asks before taking the Motion.


May we have an assurance that the Motion will not be taken until the Report is in our hands?


That is what I have endeavoured to say.

Adjourned accordingly at Three minutes after Eleven o'clock.
