asked the Prime Minister whether he can make any statement as to the Cabinet policy in reference to the imposition of Orders under Part II of the Safeguarding of Industries Act?


asked the Prime Minister if he can now state the intentions of the Government in regard to putting into operation Part II of the Safeguarding of Industries Act in the case of the fabric glove and other industries in which the Committees have recommended that the said Act should be applied?

The President of the Board of Trade is not yet in a position to make a statement on this subject.

In these circumstances, are we to take it that we have heard the last of these Orders under Part II?

No, Sir. The hon. and gallant Member would, I am sure, be sorry not to have the opportunity of putting these questions.

In view of the great urgency of this matter, can the right hon. Gentleman state when the Government will announce its intentions in regard to the question?

The hon. Member is repeating a question which has been put and answered. It has been stated that the Government have not made up their minds yet.

May I, without prejudice in the matter of urgency, repeat the question to the Prime Minister on Thursday, the first day, as I understand, when he will be in attendance in the House?
