§ Considered in Committee.
In page 1, line 12, to leave out from the word 'without' to the word 'Act' in line 13."—(Mr. Cochrane.)
§ Question proposed, "That the words proposed to be left out stand part of the clause."
§ THE SECRETARY FOR SCOTLAND (Mr. SINCLAIR,) Forfarshire
was understood to say his advisers considered that these words, which the hon. Member proposed to leave out, were necessary, and that they were operative under 1414 certain powers of procedure. Another procedure was laid down by this Bill which they desired to see brought into operation for the purpose of carrying it out.
§ MR. COCHRANE
did not want to press the Amendment, but he thought it was undesirable to have two procedures for one offence, and that the right hon. Gentleman had met the proposal in a very unsatisfactory manner.
§ Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
§ Bill reported, without Amendment; read the third time, and passed.
