§ 64. Sir J. Mellor
asked the Minister of Agriculture if, with reference to the expression, all other powers enabling him, contained in S.R. & O., 1947, No. 296, he will identify the powers and explain why the said powers were not specified in the Order.
§ Mr. T. Williams
The words to which the hon. Member refers are not strictly speaking necessary but are inserted by the draftsman from an abundance of caution.
§ Sir J. Mellor
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider whether it is desirable to confuse his Order with meaningless and unnecessary phrases?
§ Mr. Williams
I cannot agree that these words are unnecessary—at least the draftsman thinks they may be necessary and I must be guided by him.
