HC Deb 01 August 1944 vol 402 c1177W
Sir H. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for War why no explanatory memoranda were attached to the Protected Areas Orders (S.R. & 0., Nos. 792 and 793, of 1944), in order to make it clear without reference to other documents what effect these orders, respectively, had.

Sir J. Grigg

I gave the House an explanation of the effect of these Orders in answer to Questions by several hon. Members on 11th July, the day before the Orders were made. But I agree that such an explanation does not necessarily obviate the need for an explanatory note on the instrument itself, and I have arranged for such a note to be added to any similar Orders which it may be necessary to issue from time to time from my Department, whether or not a separate oral explanation is given.
