HC Deb 16 October 1945 vol 414 cc917-8
47. Mr. George Wallace

asked the Prime Minister if His Majesty's Government are prepared to consider the issue to local authorities, as a general practice, of a clearly phrased precis of every Actor Order for which local authorities receive delegated responsibility.

The Prime Minister

The Government Department concerned normally issues an explanatory circular to Local Authorities on the coming into operation of a new Act or Order affecting them, and I have received no representations from local authorities that they require anything further.

Major Lloyd

Is it not a fact that local authorities are already inundated with these things, that their bookshelves are full of them, and that they do not want any more?
