HC Deb 31 July 1922 vol 157 c978
55. Mr. KILEY

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has yet received the Reports of the Committees under the Safeguarding of Industries Act in respect of any of the following: wire nails, hooks and eyes, scientific and optical instruments, gas mantles, and glass bottles: and whether he has decided to make an Order in respect of any of these classes of goods?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The last part, accordingly, does not arise.

Captain BENN

May we expect Orders to be made in the Recess without the sanction of Parliament?


The hon. Member knows very well what are the powers under the Act.
