HC Deb 01 February 1944 vol 396 c1132
65. Mr. Liddall

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will shortly take steps to put the Prevention of Fraud (Investments) Act, 1939, into full operation?

Mr. Dalton

Yes, Sir. I have decided to fix 15th April as the date by which applications for licences to deal in securities must be submitted to my Department. Some further time must be allowed for consideration of these applications, and I aim at bringing the Act into full operation by the middle of July next.
