§ 21. Sir KINGSLEY WOOD
asked the Lord Privy Seal when he proposes to introduce the Bill to further enable local authorities to acquire land for the purposes of unemployment schemes; and when the text of the Bill will be available?
§ The LORD PRIVY SEAL (Mr. J. H. Thomas)
As the right hon. Gentleman is aware, there is a considerable pressure of business and I am not in a position to say when it will be possible for the matter to which he refers to be dealt with. I would, however, remind the right hon. Gentleman that I have already taken steps to accelerate the passage of certain Private Bills; most of these Bills contain provisions regarding the acquisition of land.
§ Sir K. WOOD
But does not the right hon. Gentleman remember pointing out to the House the urgency of this matter, and can he at any rate say whether it will be proceeded with this Session?
§ Mr. THOMAS
I did point out the urgency, and I only regret the difficulty of getting business through the House of Commons.
