HC Deb 28 January 1937 vol 319 cc1043-4
22. Mr. Batey

asked the Minister of Labour when the Special Areas Bill will be introduced?

Mr. E. Brown

I am not yet able to announce this date.

Mr. Batey

Has the right hon. Gentleman forgotten that he made a speech in which he promised this Bill in January, and we are now near the end of January. When are we going to get it? Does the Minister mean that we are not to get the Bill at all?

Mr. Brown

At an early date.

Mr. Rhys Davies

Can the right hon. Gentleman give some indication as to when he will be able to state the approximate date for the introduction of the Bill?

Mr. Brown

Not now.
