HC Deb 09 July 1958 vol 591 cc382-3
24. Mr. Willey

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will make a further statement on the preparation of new Shipbuilding and Ship-repairing Regulations.

Mr. Wood

Yes, Sir. The revised version of the preliminary draft of the Shipbuilding and Ship-repairing Regulations referred to in reply to the hon. Member on 23rd April, 1958, was published on 20th May and those concerned have been invited to submit observations on this new version by the end of this month.

Mr. Willey

While I fully recognise the aid given by the Department to expedite these proceedings, will the Department do its utmost to ensure that we get these very desirable Regulations as soon as possible, because we recognise that there has been appalling delay?

Mr. Wood

Yes, Sir.
