HC Deb 27 October 1943 vol 393 cc191-2
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.
