§ Lords Amendment: In page 2, leave out from the word "shall" in line 9, to the word "be" in line 10.
I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."
This is a consequential Amendment.
§ Miss LAWRENCE
I should like a little explanation of this Amendment. We are taking out the words, "elsewhere than in the county of London," and I would like to know if "county borough" means "metropolitan, borough." I do not understand what is the effect of taking out the words.
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)
In the County of London the functions under Part I of the Children Act, 1908, were vested in the London County Council and the Common Council. They are not functions formerly discharged by Poor Law authorities, and the words are therefore unnecessary.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Subsequent Lords Amendments, to page 5, line 30, agreed to.
