§ (Composition of Councils and Committees.)
§ (1) The Council of Agriculture for England shall consist of the following members:—
§ (b) Six members of the Agricultural Wages Board to be nominated by that Board in equal numbers from the representatives of employers and workmen.
§ Lords Amendment: Leave out the words "in equal numbers from the representatives of employers and workmen," and insert instead thereof the words "provided that not more than three of the members shall be representatives of workmen."
Sir A. BOSCAWEN
I beg to move, as an Amendment to the Lords Amendment, to leave out the words, "not more than three of the members shall he representatives of the workmen," and to insert instead thereof the words "the representatives of workmen shall be three in number."
"Not more than" may mean none or only one. I do not think that that was intended. At all events, we think that at least three should be representatives of workmen. Therefore, I move this Amendment.
§ Amendment to Lords Amendment agreed to.

§ Committee nominated of Sir A. Boscawen, Mr. Butler Mr. Hurd, and Dr. Murray.

§ To withdraw immediately. — [Sir A. Boscaven]
