HC Deb 16 June 1920 vol 130 cc1297-8W

asked the Solicitor-General whether he has received an important communication from the Liverpool Law Society as to the Indemnity Bill, pointing out that Sub-section (1) of Clause 1 seems to be sufficiently comprehensive in its terms (in particular lines 16 to 18, inclusive) to render void not merely proceedings now pending, but also proceedings which have been perfected by judgment (or the equivalent of judgment in the case of a petition of right) or even proceedings in which payment has long since been made under such judgment; and whether he will give such a reply or make such an official announcement as will allay the natural anxiety of those who are affected?


Yes. I have received the communication referred to from the Liverpool Law Society, and have already replied to the Society that the points raised are receiving my careful consideration.
