§ Special Report from the Select Committee on Statutory Rules and Orders, etc., considered.
§ 8.52 p.m.
§ Colonel Sir Charles MacAndrew (Ayr and Bute, Northern)
I beg to move,That the Order of Reference [23rd August] to the Committee be amended in line 17, by leaving out 'of it,' and inserting instead thereof 'or in the laying of it before Parliament.'The Amendment is perfectly simple. At the present time the Statutory Rules and Orders Committee report to the House any unjustifiable delay in publication, and this is to add unjustifiable delay in laying them before the House. I think there is agreement on it on all sides.
