Orders of the Day — Clause 7. — (Entry of names of disabled persons in the register.) (27 Jan 1944)

Mr Francis Douglas: I want to repudiate strongly that there is any idea in the Amendment of doing injury to a disabled person. The Minister is taking powers under this Bill to make regulations as to the manner in which people shall be entered upon the register. In those powers I have not the slightest doubt that he will make sure that no person is entered on the register if it would be detrimental to his health...

Orders of the Day — Clause 14. — (Records to be kept by employers.) (27 Jan 1944)

Orders of the Day — Clause 2. — (Regulations of Commis- sioners of Inland Revenue.) (2 Nov 1943)
