HC Deb 19 July 1944 vol 402 cc196-7W
Sir H. Williams

asked the Attorney-General why no explanatory memorandum was attached to the Supreme Court, England, Funds, Order (S.R. & O., No. 724, L.32), having regard to the fact that it relates to two Acts of Parliament and one earlier Statutory Rule and Order and that it involves eight amendments of earlier rules.

The Attorney-General

Explanatory memoranda have not so far been given with Rules of Court and this was not, I think, the type of Order which was under consideration when the question of these memoranda was discussed. My Noble Friend the Lord Chancellor is, however, considering whether it would not be desirable in proper cases (of which this may be one) to extend the practice to this class of Order.
