HC Deb 22 January 1929 vol 224 c146

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill."


This is the only Clause in regard to which there is no explanation in the White Paper issued in connection with this Bill, and although I have given some little time to its consideration I am not at all sure how far this general adaptation of enactments and other documents goes. I shall be obliged if the Minister of Health, will give us some hint as to its real scope and effect, especially seeing that there are certain orders to be made under Subsection (3) which seem to go a long way with regard to these documents and draft orders affecting them.


It is very difficult to reply to such a general inquiry. If the hon. Member had put to me a specific point I would have tried to give an answer. He may take it that this is a Clause which is not controversial in character, and is merely a machinery Clause devised for the purpose of carrying out the provisions of the Bill.
