HL Deb 31 May 1945 vol 136 cc296-7

Report from the Special Orders Committee, That they have examined the Special Order as required by the Standing Orders of the House; that in their opinion the provisions of the Order raise no important questions of policy or principle other than those which have been already accepted by the House when passing the Parliamentary Electors (War-Time Registration) Acts, 1943 and 1944, and the Representation of the People Act, 1945, under which the Order is submitted for approval; that the Order is founded on precedent inasmuch as similar Regulations have been submitted for approval under the Acts; that in the opinion of the Committee the Order can be passed by the House without special attention; and 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.
