HC Deb 12 December 1912 vol 45 c786W

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many chambers of commerce and trade associations have already appealed to him to make sure of the passage into Law this Session of the Bankruptcy Bill [Lords]; and if he can state what prospect there is of the above Bill being passed into Law this Session?


Twenty-one such representations have at present been received. With regard to the latter part of the hon. Member's question, I can only refer him to the answer, of which I am sending him a copy, given on Monday last by the Prime Minister to the hon. Member for the Brentford Division. If the Bill should fail to pass this Session, it is proposed to reintroduce it at the earliest possible moment next Session.
