§ Every Order in Council made under the provisions of these Acts shall be laid for twenty-one days before Parliament before coming into force.—[Mr. King.]
§ Brought up, and read the first time.
§ Mr. KING
I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a second time."
The object of this Clause can be very briefly stated. It is to the effect that every Order in Council made under the provisions of these Acts shall be laid for twenty-one days before Parliament. This is the same provision as was put into the Military Service Bill on Monday, and I hope that it can be accepted.
I will not accept the hon. Member's particular Amendment, but I will bring up on Report the more usual form in which this can be put in.
§ Motion and Clause, by leave, withdrawn.
§ Mr. WHITEHOUSE
No. I will not ask leave to move the Clauses dealing with the duration of the Act, and the imprisonment of young persons, but I will ask leave to move the Clause entitled (Penalties.)
