asked the Home Secretary whether he will explain the necessity for the Temporary Constables (Emergency) Rules, 1943 (S.R. & O., 1943, No. 1527), and particularise where the new Rules differ from those revoked?

New rules were required to give effect to an undertaking which I had given to provide a right of appeal against a disciplinary award involving dismissal or reduction in rate of pay. It was thought that these and other minor changes should preferably be embodied in a revised code rather than issued as amendments to the existing Rules.
