§ 52. Viscount WOLMER
asked the Prime Minister whether it is intended to introduce a Factories Bill, a Bill enforcing the Washington Eight Hours' Convention, or a Bill repealing the Trade Unions Act, 1927?
§ 48. Sir G. PENNY
asked the Prime Minister whether he intends to proceed 1762 with the Bill to amend Trade Disputes Act and to give it priority in the programme of the Government?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
As regards the Bill to amend the Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Act, 1927, I have nothing to add to the replies already given on this subject. The Hours of Industrial Employment Bill has already been introduced, but, as I informed the hon. Member for Newcastle North (Sir N. Grattan-Doyle) on the 27th May, it is not at present possible to say when the further stages will be taken. The question of the date of introduction of the Factories Bill is still under consideration.
§ Viscount WOLMER
Has the Prime Minister notified the Trades Union Council that this pledge has also gone west?
