HC Deb 29 April 1937 vol 323 c516
23. Mr. Thorne

asked the Home Secretary when he intends seeing a deputation of the Association of Municipal Corporations in connection with the municipal elections being held on the first Monday in May instead of them being held on 1st November?

The Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Lloyd)

I had arranged to receive the deputation last Thursday, but the decision of the Standing Committee which is considering the Factories Bill to sit in the afternoons as well as in the mornings made it impossible for me to receive the deputation as originally arranged. I hope to be in a position in the near future to fix another date.
