§ 38. Mr. Patrick Jenkin
asked the President of the Board of Trade when he intends to introduce legislation to amend the Restrictive Trade Practices Act, 1956.
§ Mr. Jenkin
Has not the position changed since then in that we now have not only the report of the N.E.D.C. calling for a substantial change to be made in the Act but also the report from Mr. Sich, the Registrar? Since amendment to the Restrictive Trades Practices Act has been sought for about three years, should not the Government get on with this and do something about it?
§ Mr. Jay
We have the Companies Bill to pass before that. We are examining the proposals, but it will not be possible to legislate on those issues this Session.
