HC Deb 08 April 1925 vol 182 c2326

I beg to move in page 1, line 14, after the word "England" insert the words "or the Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland."

I believe this to be entirely an omission in the drafting, and I am sure the Minister of Agriculture will recognise the society as being of equal importance to the farmers of Scotland as the Royal Agricultural Society is to England.


I beg to second the Amendment.


As my hon. Friend says, this is a drafting Amendment. There is one small further alteration I should like made which in no way affects the sense of it, and that is my hon. Friend should put the word "and" at the beginning instead of the word "or." If my hon. Friend is willing to accept that, it would not affect the sense of the Clause.

Amendment made to proposed Amendment: Leave out the word "or," and insert instead thereof the word "and."—[Mr. E. Wood.]

Proposed words, as amended, inserted in the Bill.
