HC Deb 28 July 1927 vol 209 c1609

Lords Amendment:

In page 4, line 39, leave out the words "the Moneylenders Acts, 1900 and 1911," and insert: Section two or four of the Betting and Loans (Infants) Act, 1892, or the Moneylenders Act, 1900.


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

The effect of the Bill as drafted would be really to leave no offences under the 1911 Act. Therefore, we propose to take out the whole of that Act, as there is nothing left in the matter of offences. On the other hand, this Amendment puts in the Betting and Loans (Infants) Act of 1892, and I submit that this Act should be in because it makes it an offence to send moneylenders' circulars to infants or to solicit them to make affidavits in connection with any loan.
