HC Deb 16 December 1927 vol 211 c2697

Order for Consideration of Lords Amendments read.

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister)

I beg to move "That the Lords Amendments be now considered."

I understand that the right hon. and gallant Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Col. Wedgwood) who is not able to be here at the moment, agrees with me that in so far as they are not purely drafting Amendments they are an improvement in the Bill and, therefore, as we are now in complete agreement as to the form, I hope that we shall rapidly dispose of them.

Question put, and agreed to.

Lords Amendments considered accordingly.

Lords Amendments to page 8, line 2, agreed to.
