HC Deb 04 March 1947 vol 434 c221
14. Sir John Mellor

asked the Minister of National Insurance, if, with reference to the expression "all other powers enabling him" contained in S.R. & O., 1947, No. 154, he will identify the powers.

Mr. J. Griffiths

The other powers which were particularly in mind were those conferred by Section 75 (1) of the National Insurance Act, 1946, and Section 32 (3) of the Interpretation Act, 1889.

Sir J. Mellor

Will the right hon. Gentleman say why this was not stated in the Order?

Mr. Griffiths

I have answered the Question, and if the hon. Member wants any other information perhaps he will put another Question on the Order Paper.

Sir J. Mellor

But surely it is reasonable to ask why the powers were not identified in the terms of the Order?
