I, WILLIAM NORTON, Minister for Industry and Commerce, in exercise of the power conferred on me by subsection (3) of section 2 of the Transport (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, 1955 (No. 21 of 1955), hereby order as follows :

1. This Order may be cited as the Carriage of Wheat (No. 2) Order, 1956.

2. During the period commencing on the 1st day of September, 1956, and ending on the 31st day of August, 1957, section 9 of the Road Transport Act, 1933 (No. 8 of 1933), (which restricts the carriage of merchandise by unlicensed persons) shall not apply to the carriage of wheat by a person authorised under the Wheat Order, 1956 ( S.I.
