HC Deb 02 April 1940 vol 359 c27W
Sir J. Mellor

asked the Home Secretary whether he is now able to state the results of his examination of the position consequent upon the decision of the House of Lords in the recent case of Pratt versus Cook, Son and Company (St. Paul's), Limited, concerning the operation of the Truck Acts?

Sir J. Anderson

Examination of this difficult question is progressing, but I am afraid I cannot yet make any further statement.
