§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill."
As originally drafted, the creation of a sinking fund was left optional to the Harbour Board. The Bill, however, was altered in Committee so as to make the creation of the sinking fund obligatory, and Clause 27 is no longer suitable. If it is now left out, and at the suitable stage I will move a new Clause to take its place.
§ Question put, and negatived.
