HC Deb 09 April 1919 vol 114 cc2073-4

(4) The expenses of the Chief Secretary and of the Irish Public Health Council under this Act, including reasonable compensation to members of that council for loss of remunerative time, shall be paid in like manner as the expenses of the Ministry.


I beg to move, in Sub-section (4), after the word "including," to insert the words a salary to the chairman of the council of such amount as may be determined by the Chief Secretary with the approval of the Treasury. This is an Amendment to carry out an arrangement entered into with the approval of all sides of the House. When the Bill was going through the Standing Committee it was decided that the chairman of the Irish Public Health Council should be a whole time officer, and the question of remuneration had to be decided before the matter was finally settled.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: After the word "to" ["members"], insert the words "the other."—[Mr. Samuels.]

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Bill reported.

As amended (in the Standing Committee and on re-committal), considered.


The proposed Clause [Application to Wales] in the name of the hon. Member for Battersea North (Mr. Morris) is out of order, as it goes beyond the scope of the Bill.
