HC Deb 08 June 1964 vol 696 cc11-2
8. Mr. Turner

asked the Minister of Labour when he intends to bring into force the Trade Union (Amalgamations, etc.) Act, 1964.

Mr. Godber

I intend shortly to make an Order bringing the Act into force on 1st July.

Mr. Turner

Can my right hon. Friend say what progress he is making in drawing up the regulations?

Mr. Godber

Yes, Sir. I hope to make the commencement Order and the general regulations some time next week. My hon. Friend will not, therefore, have long to wait before this Act comes fully into effect, and I congratulate him on having introduced it.
