§ 9. Captain PEAKE
asked the Secretary for Mines whether he proposes to introduce the Bill to nationalise minerals which he undertook to introduce during the past Session?
§ Mr. SHINWELL
So far as can at present be foreseen, the Parliamentary programme will not permit of this Bill being dealt with during this Session.
§ Captain PEAKE
Is it not a fact that all efforts to draft a Bill on these lines was abandoned many months ago?
