§ 51. Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the frequent cases of fraud and defalcation by secretaries of sharing-out clubs and of the comments made recently in the courts upon the case of which particulars have been sent to him, he will consider giving facilities this Session to the Sharing-Out Clubs Bill?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
As my hon. Friend the Financial Secretary to the Treasury showed on the Second Heading of the Bill on 24th April, the Measure in its present form is not wholly adequate to secure its objects and in view of the great pressure on Parliamentary time I am afraid it is not possible for special facilities to be provided for the necessary amendment of the Bill.
