restrictions wvere promulgated. E':ch English Order is followed
by the corresponding Orders of Scotland and I[orthern Ireland.
The Orders are numbered serially by groups of three and will
be referred to in each item of the summary by those numbers and
by page references when the appropriate text is included in
circular B. E. P. Q.--416.
