HC Deb 31 July 1946 vol 426 cc209-10W
132. Mr. Emrys Roberts

asked the Attorney-General what action His Majesty's Government propose to take to implement the Report of the Committee on Alternative Remedies, and, in particular, whether the Government will, introduce legislation to abolish the doctrine of common employment.

The Attorney-General

I would refer the hon. Member to a reply given by my right hon. Friend the Minister of National Insurance on 11th July to the hon. Member for Normanton (Mr. T Smith), and to the statement made by my noble Friend the Lord Chancellor on 19th July with reference to the Report and the National Insurance (Industrial Injuries) Bill. I am unable to enlarge upon the statement of my noble Friend until the examination of the Report to which he referred has been completed.
