HC Deb 28 February 1928 vol 214 cc360-1
The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Arthur Michael Samuel)

I beg to move, in page 1, line 11, after the word "member," to insert the words "and after the passing of this Act."

The object of this Amendment is to meet the point raised in the Second Reading Debate by my hon. and gallant Friend, the Member for Pembroke (Major Price). He pointed out that the Bill in its present form is retrospective in the condition it seeks to impose upon friendly societies. In order to remove any doubt, I am moving to insert the words which I promised to insert at the time of the Second Reading.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 2 (Short title, construction, and extent), ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Bill reported; as amended, considered; read the Third time, and passed.
