HC Deb 21 July 1898 vol 62 c757

Amendment proposed— Page 2, line 22, leave out 'In every criminal prosecution after this Act,' and insert 'where.'"—(Sir E. Clarke.)


I am thankful to my honourable and learned Friend for pointing out that my Amendment did not cover the whole case. It had occurred to me that it might be left to the Court, but I agree that it is much better to determine at once the particular stage of the proceedings at which the evidence shall be competent, and I agree to these Amendments.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment proposed— In line 23, leave out 'upon'; in line 24 leave out from 'the' to 'shall,' in line 25, and insert 'person charged he'; line 26, leave out 'case,' and insert 'evidence'; line 27, leave out from 'prosecution' to the end of the clause."—(Sir E. Clarke.)

Agreed to.
