Orders in Council (Hansard, 3 February 1987)
HC Deb 03 February 1987 vol 109 cc579-80W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will list the measures introduced by his Department since 1979 that have been enacted by Order in Council; and which have not been debated in the House of Commons.

Mr. Tom King

In the period 1 January 1979 to 31 December 1986, 25 such Orders in Council were made under the Northern Ireland Act 1974 without debate. All were subject to negative resolution under the provisions of a related Great Britain Act to which the Northern Ireland Order in Council corresponds. The purpose of including such provisions in Great Britain Bills is to enable Parliament to debate the provisions of the Bill in the knowledge that corresponding provisions will be applied in Northern Ireland by Order in Council.

A further five Orders in Council were made subject to negative resolution under other legislation, without debate.

A list of these Orders in Council is as follows:

  • Social Security (Northern Ireland) Order 1979
