Report from the Special Orders Committee, That they have examined the Special Order as required by the Standing Orders of the House; that they have considered a Memorandum by the Minister of Labour; that in their opinion the provisions of the Order raise important questions of policy and principle, as the Order provides that the Unemployment Assistance (Temporary Provisions) Act, 1935, shall not continue in operation after the 15th November, 1936; that the Order is not founded on precedent; that in the opinion of the Committee the Order cannot be passed by the House without special attention, but that no further inquiry is necessary before the House proceeds to a decision on the Resolution to approve the said Order:

Read, and ordered to lie on the Table.
