HC Deb 13 April 1921 vol 140 c1130W
Viscount ELVEDEN

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has any information as to when the Canadian Government, or the Government of any other of His Majesty's Dominions, is likely to pass reciprocal legislation to the Maintenance Orders (Facilities for Enforcement) Act, 1920?


The Newfoundland Government stated in February last that they proposed to introduce legislation in the coming Session. I am unable at present to say when legislation will be passed in the other self-governing dominions. Legislation has already been passed in some of the colonies, and I anticipate that legislation will shortly be passed in the remainder. I understand that a Bill has been introduced into the Council of State in India.
