HL Deb 03 November 1948 vol 159 c268

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 questions of policy and principle which have been accepted already by the House when passing the Army and Air Force (Women's Service) Act, 1948; That the Order is not founded on precedent; 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 present an Address to His Majesty praying that the Order be made: Read, and ordered to lie on the Table.

House adjourned at seven minutes before seven o'clock.
