HC Deb 08 May 1941 vol 371 c982
64. Mr. G. Strauss

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can make any statement as to the general progress made in the drawing up of schemes for the concentration of industry?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade (Captain Waterhouse)

The hon. Member will no doubt have seen in the Press that the latest dates for the submission of voluntary arrangements for concentration have been fixed for certain industries. The dates range from 15th to 31st May. As soon as possible after the latter date my right hon. Friend hopes to review the situation and make a further statement.
