HC Deb 14 August 1919 vol 119 cc1757-8

(1) This Act may be cited as the Acquisition of Land (Assessment of Compensation) Act, 1919, and shall come into operation on the first day of July, nineteen hundred and nineteen, but shall not apply to the determination of any question where before that date the appointment of an arbitration, valuation, or other tribunal to determine the question has been completed, or a jury has been empanelled for the purpose.

Lords Amendment:

In Sub-section (1), leave out the word "July"[on the 1st of July";, and insert instead thereof the word "September."


I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

Lieut.-Colonel MURRAY

Of course it is necessary to alter the word "July" to the word "September," but I should like to take the opportunity of saying that the Amendments moved in another place have certainly not improved this Bill.


That is not quite relevant to the word "September."

Question put, and agreed to.
