HC Deb 29 November 1926 vol 200 c961
Lieut.-Colonel FREMANTLE

I beg to move, in page 5, line 10, at the end, to insert: (2) Where the person effecting the disposal is the incumbent of a parish, the fee payable to the incumbent in respect of the disposal shall be increased by the sum of sixpence. I think that what is proposed by this Amendment is only a matter of simple justice. The Bill imposes certain duties on those who have to effect the disposal of bodies, and where that work is undertaken by the incumbent of the parish, it is only right that he should have this little extra fee.


I beg to second the Amendment.


I would like to ask whether this Amendment is in order? Is it not an Amendment imposing a new charge?


I think not. The extra charge will come upon the individual.

Commander WILLIAMS

Ought not the word "effecting" in the first line to be "procuring," in view of the Amendment we made a minute or two ago?


No, Sir. In this case it would be the person "effecting" the disposal, and not "procuring." I shall be happy to accept this Amendment.

Amendment agreed to.
