I beg to move:

"That an humble Address be presented to His Majesty in pursuance of the provisions of Section 157 of the Government of Burma Act, 1935, praying that the Government of Burma (High Court Judges) (Amendment) Order, 1947, be made in the form of the draft laid before Parliament."
This applies particularly to one judge, Mr. Justice Blagden, who, during the occupation of Burma by the Japanese forces, was given an appointment in the High Court of Calcutta. Unless this Order is made, he will be debarred from the allowances that are payable to judges of the High Court of Rangoon. It is to regularise the position that we seek approval of the House to this Order.

Debate adjourned.—[ Mr. Snow.]

Debate to be resumed upon Friday.
