HC Deb 05 April 1955 vol 539 c998
49. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Prime Minister, in view of the fact that he recently received a deputation representative of the cotton industry, if he will make a statement on the circumstances which decide his policy in receiving deputations representative of British industries.

Mr. Crookshank

The circumstances which affect a decision to receive a deputation are so many and so varied that it would not be profitable to lay down a general policy.

Mr. Hughes

Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that the fishing industry is greatly interested in what are called "imminent events"? Are we to be told if the Government are going to bury Caesar in the House of Lords, or is he to be allowed to come back here and worry Anthony?
