HC Deb 21 July 1908 vol 192 c1858

Considered in Committee.

(In the Committee.)

Clause 1:

MR. FORSTER (Kent, Sevenoaks) moved an Amendment which he understood was accepted by the Government. It carried out what he believed was the agreement arrived at when the Bill was last under discussion.

Amendment proposed— In page 1, line 21, to leave out the words 'the said.'"—(Mr. Forster.)

Amendment proposed— In page 1, line 21, after the word 'section,' to insert the words '42 of the said Act.'"—(Mr. Forster.)

MR. MITCHELL-THOMSON (Lanarkshire, N.W.)

asked the hon. and learned Gentleman if he could give an answer to the conundrum put to him as to what was to happen if a person did not approve of the statement prepared by the registrar.


said that these words occurred in the section of the Act, and the reason why they had been introduced in this Bill was because they had formed part of the law for the last twenty years.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 2, and schedule agreed to.

Bill reported; as amended, to be considered To-morrow.
