§ 13. Major C. S. Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will state the reason for paragraph (a) of the Order in Council, dated 29th June, 1944 (S.R. & O. No. 741, of 1944), which provides for the revocation of paragraph (2a) of Regulation 7, which empowers the Secretary of State to prohibit the possession by any person of apparatus capable of transmitting signals to the enemy.
§ The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Herbert Morrison)
Experience has shown that this paragraph is no longer needed and that any necessary restrictions can be effected by the use of the general powers conferred by Defence Regulation 40.
