asked the Minister of Production whether he will make a full statement on the consultations and discussions that have taken place on Statutory Rules and Orders, 1943, No. 196, Order, adding Regulation 54CA to the Defence (General) Regulations, 1939, and give the names of every person who has taken part in the consultations?

As stated in the House by the hon. Member for Duddeston (Mr. Simmonds) on 24th February last, I met certain hon. Members and have subsequently had two further meetings with them in regard to the Order in question. They have been informed that the Government will submit to His Majesty in Council shortly a revised Regulation which, when approved, will of course be open for discussion by the House in the ordinary way if hon. Members so desire. I would accordingly ask my hon. Friend to await its publication.
