HC Deb 01 April 1925 vol 182 cc1397-8

Notwithstanding anything in the Army Act or in any other enactment relating to the use of His Majesty's forces, no person subject to military law shall be liable, nor shall it be lawful to call upon any such person, to take duty in aid of the civil power in connection with a trade dispute or to perform, in consequence of a trade dispute, any civil or industrial duty customarily performed by a civilian in the course of his employment. Provided that in the event of His Majesty declaring by proclamation, in accordance with the provisions of the Emergency Powers Act, 1920, that a state of emergency exists, this Section shall not apply so long as such state of emergency continues.


This Amendment is out of order, but I understand that the hon. Member intends to move it in another form.
