HC Deb 09 October 1946 vol 427 c66W
80. Mr. Janner

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is yet in a position to make a statement with regard to the action which the Government propose to take on the report of the Working Party for the Boot and Shoe Industry.

Mr. Belcher

My right hon. and learned Friend is anxious that action should be taken on this report as quickly as possible; but he is not in a position to make any general statement on policy until both sides of the industry have had time to consider the report and discuss it with him.
