HC Deb 08 February 1951 vol 483 cc235-6W
103. Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when it is intended to bring into effect the provisions of the Justices of the Peace Act, 1949, abolishing the separate commissions of the peace of non-county boroughs.

Mr. Ede

It is intended to bring Section 10 of the Act (which abolishes certain commissions of the peace) into force on the 1st October next. It is, however, just possible that on further detailed examination legal difficulties of a technical character may be found in the way of this date and a definite announcement will be made as soon as possible.
