HC Deb 25 July 1949 vol 467 c1813
56. Mr. Raikes

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power when the Gas Staff Compensation Regulations will be published.

Mr. Gaitskell

The preparation of these regulations necessarily involves careful consideration of the circumstances of the industry and consultation with interested bodies. This work is proceeding but I cannot yet say when the regulations, which must, under the Gas Act, 1948, be laid before Parliament not later than six months after vesting date, will be published.
