HC Deb 03 June 1931 vol 253 cc198-9
37. Mr. McSHANE

asked the Minister of Labour what further developments, if any, have taken place with regard to the proposed Trade Board for the catering trade?


The proceedings which have been brought to prevent the making of this Order have been taken on appeal to the House of Lords. No action can be taken pending the hearing of the appeal.


Is it not a fact that the last statement of the right hon. Lady was that six weeks only were to lapse, and I have therefore put down this question after the lapse of six weeks?


No, Sir, there was no time put to the hearing by the Court.
