§ 70. Sir H. Williams
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport why the Emergency Powers (Defence) (Merchant Shipping) Order (S.R. & O., No. 1464, of 1943), which was signed on 30th September, 1943, and came into operation on that date, was not available in the Library till 14th October?
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
I regret that the delay occurred through an oversight in my Department. Steps have been taken to make sure that no such delay shall occur again.
