HC Deb 09 February 1931 vol 248 cc36-7

asked the Attorney-General if he has considered the communication sent from the Incorporated Society of Auctioneers, urging him to introduce legislation restoring to tenants the freedom of choice of insurance office which they enjoyed prior to the recent decision in the case of Tredegar v. Harwood; and what action he is prepared to take in the matter?

Mr. THURTLE (Lord of the Treasury) (for The ATTORNEY-GENERAL)

I have been asked to reply. I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given by the Lord Advocate on 25th November last to the effect that in the present state of Parliamentary business it is not possible to introduce legislation on this subject.


Will the hon. Member convey to the Attorney-General the fact that there is great dissatisfaction among the trading community in this country at the decision that there is not to be any legislation to amend this matter?


I will undertake to convey the point of the supplementary question to my hon. and learned Friend.
