HC Deb 24 June 1977 vol 933 c603W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Lord President of the Council how many Bills introduced by the Government in one Session of Parliament, which have been dropped, have subsequently received the Royal Assent during the next Session of Parliament since 1950.

Mr. Foot

Since 1950 there have been 53 Government Bills which did not receive Royal Assent until the Session after the one in which they were originally introduced.
