Order for Consideration, as amended, read.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now taken into Consideration."—(Viscount Sandon.)

Motion agreed to.

Bill, as amended, considered.

Amendment proposed, "That the Rules to be framed under the Act be laid upon the Table of the House."—(Viscount Sandon.)


was glad that the noble Lord had introduced that Amendment. It was of great importance that those Rules should be laid upon the Table of the House. But he wished to direct the attention of the noble Lord particularly to two matters. Judgments that were to be delivered by the assessors ought to be put into writing. He thought that it would be for the convenience of the Board of Trade that that should be so. Assessors were provided at considerable expenditure, and it would be of great advantage that their judgments should be put into writing. He hoped that provision would be made for the assessors to be appointed by some arrangement in the nature of a rota from a list provided by the Home Secretary. If that were done it would be a great improvement, and would give very great satisfaction.


said, that he would bear in mind the matters the he and learned Member had referred to.

Amendment agreed to.

Bill read the third time, and passed.
