HC Deb 05 August 1914 vol 65 cc2002-3

This Act shall extend to Scotland only,-and shall come into operation on the first day of January one thousand nine hundred and fifteen.

Major HOPE

I beg to move, at end of Clause, to add the words, "or such later date, not being later than the first day of October, one thousand nine hundred and fifteen, as the Local Government Board for Scotland may appoint."

The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. McKinnon Wood)

I am prepared to accept the Amendment. It is purely optional. It leaves it to the discretion of the Local Government Board, and under present circumstances that might be useful.

Question, "That those words be there added," put, and agreed to.
