HC Deb 16 December 1935 vol 307 c1422W

asked the Attorney-General whether consideration will be given during the present Parliament to the introduction of legislation to implement the report of the committee of inquiry into the ability of private individuals to sue the Crown for damages due to the action of Government Departments or their officials?


I understand that the report, to which the hon. Member refers, is that of the Crown Proceedings Committee, which was presented in 1927. The report did not contain any recommendation as to the desirability or feasibility of this suggestion and such information as I have does not lead me to think that there is any general agreement in favour of the hon. Member's proposal.
