asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation if he will identify the powers enabling, other than those specified, to which reference is made in Statutory Instrument, 1951, No. 319; and why these are not identified in the instrument.

The reference in S.I. 1951, No. 319, to "other powers enabling" is a formula which is usually and properly employed in Statutory Instruments to comprehend such ancillary powers as are or might be brought into play when a specific power is exercised. These ancillary powers are provisions of the general statute law, for instance, in the Interpretation Act and Statutory Instruments Act.
