HC Deb 02 December 1930 vol 245 c1957
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?


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?


The hon. Member is quite misinformed.
