HC Deb 30 January 1947 vol 432 c262W
103. Mr. E. Fletcher

asked the Attorney-General whether the necessary Bill to modify the law concerning proceedings against the Crown has now been drafted, when it will be ready; and when it is proposed to introduce it.

The Attorney-General

The preparation of the Crown Proceedings Bill is nearing completion and, as stated in the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Nelson and Come (Mr. S. Silverman) on 27th January, it is hoped to introduce the Bill as soon as Parliamentary time is available. As stated more than once both in this House and in another place the Government are alive to the desirability of introducing legislation on this subject as soon as practicable.
