§ 63. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
asked the Secretary to the Treasury why Statutory Instrument 386 of 1948, which purports to have been presented on 26th February, 1948, and to come into operation on 1st March, 1948, was not available in the Vote Office on 5th March.
§ Mr. Glenvil Hall
The Instrument was published and on sale on 1st March, but by a regrettable breakdown of the usual machinery for delivery it was not available in the Vote Office until the hon. Member's Question called attention to the omission, for which I apologise to the House.
