The following Amendments stood on the Order Paper in the name ofSIR HARRY FOSTER: In page 1, line 12, leave out the word "net"; after the word "thereof" insert the words "including the weight of the paper or other receptacle in which such article is contained.


When I put down these Amendments, I had not had an opportunity of seeing the Amendment to Clause 4 standing in the name of the President of the Board of Trade. While we all regret very much—and I imagine the President of the Board of Trade regrets it as much as any of us—the pressure under which we are obliged to. consider this Bill, I desire to acknowledge, as one who has put down many Amendments, the way in which the right hon. Gentleman has met the Amendments, and met the circumstances. I desire to thank him for the consideration which he has given to those of us who have had to criticise the Bill. I do not propose to move my Amendments to this Clause.

Clause ordered to stand part of the Bill.
