HC Deb 14 August 1916 vol 85 c1466

The powers conferred on the Board by this Act shall not be exercised unless and until provision is made by Parliament for defraying the expenses incurred by the Board in the exercise of such powers.


I beg to move to leave out the Clause.

I shall have to move as a new Clause the methods by which the financial provisions shall be made by Parliament, and it is, therefore, necessary to leave out this Clause, which is of a formal character coming from another place, in order that I may move the new Clause dealing with the financial provisions when we come to it.

Question, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill," put, and negatived.
