HC Deb 20 July 1914 vol 65 c63W

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many Trade Board Act Provisional Order Acts have been passed since the coming into operation of the Trade Boards Act, 1908, stating as regards each the title, year, chapter, and the trade or trades to which it applies the Act of 1908; and the corresponding particulars as regards any Trade Boards Act Provisional Order Bills, including the Bill of the present Session, which have been introduced but have failed to pass into law?


One Act to confirm Provisional Orders under the Trade Boards Act, 1909, has been passed, namely, the Act of 1913 (3 and 4 Geo. 5, Ch. clxii.), which confirmed Provisional Orders relating to four trades, namely:—(1) Sugar confectionery and food preserving; (2) shirtmaking (3) hollow-ware making; and (4) linen and cotton embroidery. The trades are described more fully in the Act of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy. The Bill to confirm the four Orders mentioned above also contained a fifth Order relating to "Calendering and Machine Ironing in Steam Laundries," which, however, was not confirmed. The only other Provisional Order made under the Trade Boards Act related to "Calendering and Machine Ironing in Laundries," the Bill to confirm which was introduced in the present Session and failed to pass into law.
