HC Deb 19 July 1900 vol 86 c583

Order for consideration, as amended, read.


pointed out that in Ireland the repayment of deposits might be made by an Order either of the Lord Chancellor or the county court. In England it was by an Order of the Treasury. It was a little strange that the Treasury should be asked to make an Order in a civil matter in regard to which they could do practically nothing. Under the Workmen's Compensation Act there was practically the same subject dealt with, and there the Order was by the Treasury or the, county court. That seemed to be the correct form, and it was a pity it was not adhered to in this case.


had no doubt due weight would be given to the general observations of the hon. Member with regard to the desirability of uniformity.

Bill read the third time, and passed.
