HC Deb 15 May 1924 vol 173 cc1539-40
49. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Prime Minister whether it is the intention of His Majesty's Government to introduce a Bill for the public ownership of minerals?


Perhaps the hon. and gallant Member will await the statement of the Government's policy which will be made in the course of the Debate to-morrow.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware, before he makes a statement, that the party on this side have declared themselves in favour of such public ownership?
