Lords Amendment: Leave out the words
or which may be made subsequent to the commencement of this Act.
§ Captain BOWYER
I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."
This Amendment is to leave out words, which were inserted in the Bill on the 2462 Report stage, at the instance of the hon. Member for Bodmin (Mr. Foot). I accepted them provisionally, now they have been found to be unnecessary. With the consent of the hon. Gentleman and the Home Office, I desire that they should be left out.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
