HC Deb 22 March 1929 vol 226 cc2022-3

Lords Amendment: In page 58, line 40, after the word "may," insert the words "by Order."


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

This and the next Amendment—in line 41, at the end, insert: (2) an Order under this Section shall be laid before Parliament as soon as may be after it is made"— should be taken together. They provide that where the Minister is varying the increase in the specified rate of poundage and putting in some other figure, he has to do it by Order, and Parliament is to have an opportunity of revising that Order.

Question put, and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendment agreed to.
