HC Deb 01 February 1940 vol 356 cc1269-70
71. Mr. Leach

asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider amending the Draft Regulations governing house-to-house collections, dated 9th December last, which give in Clause 16 a list of authorised accountants' societies whose certificates are to be recognised, so as to include the Institution of Certified Public Accountants, already recognised by other Government Departments?

Sir J. Anderson

I have received representations with regard to the regulation to which the hon. Member refers and these will be fully considered before the regulations are finally made.

Mr. Leach

Does that mean that we may hope that this society will be included?

Sir J. Anderson

I will not prejudge the decision which may be come to.
