HC Deb 26 May 1919 vol 116 c873

The definition of the expression "working classes" contained in the Schedule, Clause 12 (e), of the Housing of the Working Classes Act, 1903 (3 Edw. VII., cap. 39), shall not apply to this Act.—[Colonel Sir Henry Norris.]

Brought up, and read the first time.


This Clause should come as an Amendment to the New Clause standing in the name of the hon. Member for Wood Green (Mr. G. Locker-Lampson).


Do I understand you to say, Mr. Speaker, that this Clause should go as an Amendment to the Bill?


If it can be taken at all, it should come as an Amendment to the hon. Member's own New Clause. When we reach that point, I shall have to give a ruling upon it, and I think the effect of it will be to exclude the New Clause altogether.
