asked the Minister of Labour when the new Special Areas Bill will be ready?

There is a later question to-day on this subject addressed to the Prime Minister.


asked the Prime Minister whether he can now state when the Special Areas Bill will be introduced?

I hope that it may be possible to introduce the Bill at the end of next week.

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when the Bill will be at the disposal of hon. Members?

I think the introduction of the Bill and the supply of it go together. When the Bill is introduced it will be immediately available. But I will look into that point.

Will the right hon. Gentleman take note of the fact that it is really important that the House should have time to consider the contents of a Bill of this nature?
