HC Deb 15 December 1926 vol 200 cc2970-1

Lords Amendment:

In page 2, line 21, at the end, insert printing of any pleading, transcript of evidence or other document for use in connection with any judicial proceedings or the communication thereof to persons concerned in the proceedings, or to the printing or.


I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

This is little more than a drafting Amendment. It was felt that the Clause as it stood would not protect the printer who printed the pleadings and other documents in connection with the proceedings, and that he might be liable for a technical offence. Therefore, the Home Office asked that this Amendment might be inserted in another place.

Question put, and agreed to.

Remaining Lords Amendment agreed to.
