§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (THE MARQUESS OF ZETLAND)
My Lords, I have to ask your Lordships' approval of the draft of three Orders in 222 Council under the Government of India Act, 1935, and of one Order under the Government of Burma Act, 1935. These Orders have been examined by the India and Burma Orders Committee, and that Committee has reported to your Lordships that they raise no new question of policy or principle and that they may be passed without special attention by your Lordships. They are, in fact, in each case Orders which are supplementary of Orders which Parliament has already agreed to. In those circumstances I beg to move.
§ Moved, That the Draft Order, as presented to Parliament and reported from the India and Burma Orders Committee on Thursday last, be approved.—(The Marquess of Zetland.)
§ LORD RANKEILLOUR
My Lords, I just desire to say, for the comfort and consolation of my noble friend the Secretary of State for India, that the vigilance of my friends has been able to find no evil in these Orders.
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
