Orders of the Day — Welsh Courts Bill (14 Oct 1942)

Sir Charles Edwards: I want to say a word or two about this Bill, because Monmouthshire is brought in, and I happen to be the senior Member for Monmouthshire, and indeed, for the whole of South Wales, and very nearly North Wales, if it were not for two others.
