asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport what notice was given to those affected that the Emergency Powers (Defence) Regulated Areas Order (S.R. & O., No. 716 of 1943), which was signed in London on 28th May, became operative in two Scottish counties on the same day?

The Order to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers came into force on the day on which it was signed. Its effect was merely to make good the accidental omission of the names of two counties in an Order made a month earlier, on l9th April. My hon. and gallant Friend may rest assured that nobody was in any way prejudiced by the fact that prior notice was not given.
