HC Deb 01 August 1924 vol 176 cc2423-68

Order read for Consideration of Lords Amendments.

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Lords Amendments be now considered."—(Mr. Gosling.)


Can we have some indication from the Government as to their general attitude towards these Amendments?


In the main, I propose to accept these Amendments. But there are two matters with which the Government must disagree. One is the question of the introduction of the regulation of trams, and the other the length of time which the Bill is to run. It is only on those two points that I ask the House to disagree.

Question, "That the Lords Amendments be now considered," put, and agreed to.

Lords Amendments considered accordingly.
