HC Deb 08 July 1946 vol 425 cc8-9W
82. Brigadier Low

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that his Department is satisfied at present with a delay of up to seven days in urgent cases between the making of a decision and its implementation by despatching the necessary authority to private persons and if he will instruct his Department that decisions once taken by himself or any senior official acting under him shall be implemented within 24 hours.

Sir S. Cripps

I do not know to what the hon. and gallant Member is referring in the first part of the question; but if he has any particular case in mind and will let me have details, I shall be glad to look into it.
