§ 60. Mr. Turner-Samuels
asked the Attorney-General whether, as the Government agree that the distinction between public authorities and other defendants regarding the period in which an action may be brought for tort should be removed, and Lord Justice Tucker's Committee having recommended the removal of the distinction since June, 1949, Her Majesty's Government will introduce 13W legislation to amend the Limitation Act, 1939, accordingly.
§ The Attorney-General
As I said in reply to a Question by the hon. and learned Member on 26th October, the Government recognise that there is much to be said for removing this distinction between public authorities and other defendants, but I cannot hold out any hope that it will be possible for the Government to introduce legislation at an early date.
