HC Deb 28 July 1919 vol 118 cc1834-5W
58. Captain ORMSBY-GORE

asked the Prime Minister if he will give a day for the discussion of the Second Report of the Sankey Commission on the Coal Industry, before announcing their policy on that Re port, in order that there may be a free expression of the opinion of the House of Commons on the question of nationalisation and various alternatives to such a policy?


As I have already stated, it is hoped that the Government's decision will be communicated to the House before the Recess, and I think that it would lie better for the House to await that statement.
