HC Deb 10 July 1919 vol 117 c2049W

asked the Minister of Health whether it is to be understood that the National Register will be allowed to lapse; and, if so, whether local authorities can be so informed in order that they may make arrangements in advance to discontinue their unnecessary work and expense upon the register?


Yes, Sir; the National Registration Acts will expire on the date of the termination of the present War; and the precise date, as soon as it has been determined by Order in Council, will be made known to local registration authorities. Those authorities are being advised that in the meantime all duties under the Act, whether of the authorities themselves or of the public, may properly be suspended.
