asked the Home Secretary why no explanatory memorandum was attached to the Emergency Powers (Defence) Civil Defence Order (S.R. & O., No. 1475, of 1943), having regard to the fact that it involved reference to five earlier Orders?
The Order referred to five earlier Civil Defence Orders and extended them to a combined Civil Defence Service. It was considered sufficiently self-explanatory since the subject matter of the earlier Orders was described in the text so as to indicate the effect of the new Order.
