§ Mr. WALTER ROCH
asked the Home Secretary if he is aware that the Regulations made under the Defence of the Realm Act are published only in supplements to the "London Gazette," copies of which can often not be obtained; and whether he will take steps to publish these new Regulations in a complete form, so that the public may know the law that they have to observe?
My hon. Friend is mistaken in saying that the Regulations under the Defence of the Realm Act are published only in supplements to the "London Gazette." All Orders in Council under the Act have been separately printed for sale, and consolidated editions of the Regulations, containing all additions and amendments to date, were published and put on sale in July, 1915, and in February last. A further edition, incorporating additions up to the 23rd instant, is now in the Press, and will be issued in a day or two. In response to a request made to me by the hon. Member for Kirkcaldy Burghs, I have arranged 2741W that in future copies of these Regulations may be obtained at the Vote Office on application.
