§ Mr. R. MORRISON
asked the Minister of Labour whether he has under consideration any suggestions for abolishing any of the existing Trade Boards, or modifying their functions, and, if so, what are the Trade Boards concerned; and whether he will take steps to consult all the interests concerned, and will lay before this House any suggested alterations for criticism or approval before they become operative?
§ Sir M. BARLOW
An application has been received for a Special Order withdrawing the milk distributive trade from the operation of the Trade Boards Acts, and the interests concerned are being consulted. I would point out that before any such Order can be made, a statutory public inquiry must be held if the Order is contested.
