HC Deb 03 June 1938 vol 336 cc2429-30W
Mr. Crowder

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, whether he is aware that copies of the new Increase of Rent and Mortgage Interest (Restrictions) Act were not available this week at the Stationery Office although the Act had come into force; and whether, for the convenience of the public, arrangements can be made to ensure the earlier printing of Acts of Parliament before they become operative?

Captain Wallace:

The Royal Assent to this Bill was given on 26th May and copies of the Act are available to the public today. Every effort is made to expedite the printing of Acts of Parliament, but a lapse of some days after the Royal Assent has been given is inevitable before copies are available for issue.
