Sir A. MONO
I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."
This Amendment is moved in connection with the next Amendment. Clause 1 of the Bill as it stands provides the terms for England only. It has been found necessary that the Welsh and Scottish application Clauses should provide that the Bill is to apply to Wales and Scotland in addition to laying down modifications for those countries.
§ Question put, and agreed to. Lords Amendment:
In Sub-section (2), leave out the words, In the application of this Act to Wales," and insert
This Act shall apply to Wales subject to the following modifications, that is to say.
