§ 45. Mr. LEES-SMITH
asked the Prime Minister whether the Government has reconsidered Regulation 40 D of the Defence of the Realm Act; and whether he has any statement to make?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
This Regulation has been reconsidered by a Committee of the Cabinet, which recommends that in the interests of the health of our soldiers and of those of the Dominions the Regulation must for the present be maintained.
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
Has the right hon. Gentleman taken into consideration the fact that this Regulation imposes penalties on women alone and that it is received with intense hostility by every organised women's society in the country?
