HC Deb 06 December 1920 vol 135 cc1855-6

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Schedule stand part of the Bill."

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

May I ask the hon. Gentleman who represents the Charity Commissioners to give us an explanation of the Schedule which contains the gist of the Bill. I would also ask why is it necessary to take this Bill, which may be very important, on the Floor of the House instead of sending it upstairs, when the Government assure us that they have not time to bring in measures which hon. Members feel strongly ought to have been brought in long since.


In reply to the hon. and gallant Gentleman, I may say that the Schedule is the model trust in Bills of the kind. As to the other point, it has been the custom in the past for Bills initiated by the Charity Commissioners to be taken in this House by general agreement.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill reported, without Amendment; read the Third time, and passed.
