HC Deb 24 April 1950 vol 474 cc65-6W
119. Sir J. Mellor

asked the President of the Board of Trade why essential dates, omitted from S.I., 1950, No. 508, were supplied by correcting slip, bearing no date or authority; and if he will arrange for the Instrument to be published in proper form.

Mr. Rhodes

The essential dates were entered in the signed copy of the Order, and correcting slips were issued in accordance with normal practice when the omission was discovered in the published copies. The correcting slips bore the imprint of His Majesty's Stationery Office and the number and title of the instrument. If it is necessary to reprint the Order the dates will of course be incorporated.
