HC Deb 13 December 1944 vol 406 cc1222-3
46. Mr. Craik Henderson

asked the Prime Minister whether he has considered the Special Report from the Select Committee on Statutory Rules and Orders; and whether it is intended to give effect to these recommendations, including the suggested amendment of the Rules Publication Act, 1893.

Mr. Eden

Careful consideration is being given to the Report, but it is too soon to say what conclusions are likely to be reached.

Mr. Henderson

Is my right hon. Friend able to say anything about the Rules Publication Act, to which the Home Secretary has promised to bring in an amending Bill?

Mr. Eden

I am afraid not at present because I understand that this proposal may involve legislation.

Sir H. Williams

Has my right hon. Friend forgotten the definite promise which the Home Secretary gave us when he had that slip-up last summer?

Mr. Eden

My hon. Friend may rest assured that the Government never forget their promises.
