§ 48. Captain BAGLEY
asked the Prime Minister whether he will state the considerations which governed the selection of the particular commodities set forth in Financial Resolution No. 1 of the Safeguarding of Industries Bill.
This subject cannot be discussed by question and answer, but full explanations will be given when the Financial Resolutions are discussed.
§ Captain BAGLEY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is a feeling among Members that certain other industries might be regarded as essential industries, and what facilities will Members have for urging that view on the House?
I am aware that that view is held in some quarters, and the proper time to urge the view is when the Resolution comes to be discussed. Obviously one cannot deal with a complicated matter of this kind in the time allotted to questions and answers.
§ Captain W. BENN
Will the right hon. Gentleman circulate to the House a plain 1107 statement of the principles which have governed the drafting of the Bill?
§ Sir F. LOWE
Is it in order for Private Members to move any additions to the list of commodities within the Resolution?
