The Census (Postponement of Date) Order, 1921

[10 June 1921]

1921. No. 1021

At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 10th day of June, 1921.


The King's Most Excellent Majesty in Council.

Whereas by Section 1 of the Census Act, 1920, (a) it is provided that his Majesty may by Order in Council prescribe the date on which the Census is to be taken and that any Order in Council made under that Section may be revoked, amended, or varied by a subsequent Order:
And whereas by the Census Order, 1920, (b) it was provided that the Census should be taken on the 24th day of April, 1921:
And whereas by reasons arising from the present state of emergency it appears to His Majesty that it will not be possible for the census to be taken on the day so fixed, and that it is expedient that the taking of the Census should be postponed until a later date to be hereafter determined:

Now, therefore, His Majesty, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, in pursuance of Section 1 of the Census Act, 1920, and of all other powers enabling Him in that behalf, is pleased to order, and it is hereby ordered, as follows:—

1. This Order may be cited as the Census (Postponement of Date) Order, 1921.

2. The Census Order, 1920, shall have effect, and shall be deemed always to have had effect, as if such date as His Majesty may by Order in Council hereafter prescribe were therein substituted for the 24th day of April, 1921.
