§ Mr. WISE
I do not move my Amendment, in page 2, line 19, to leave out the word "thirty," and to insert instead thereof the words "two hundred."
2350 Motion made, and Question, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill," put, and agreed to.
Clauses 3 (Certain debt not to be reckoned as asset of local loans fund); 4 (Remission of balance of principal and interest in respect of loans to which preceding section applies and of interest in respect of certain other loans); 5 (Remission, of principal and interest in respect of certain loans already written off assets of local loans fund); 6 (Remission of outstanding interest on loan to Scrabster Harbour Trustees); and 7 (Short title), ordered to stand part of the Bill.
Schedules agreed to.
Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Chairman do report the Bill, as amended, to the House."
§ Mr. BOOTHBY
I do not want to detain the Committee for more than a very few moments, but this Bill affects my constituency to a greater degree, perhaps, than any other constituency in the country. I want to express my satisfaction at the treatment accorded to 2351 Fraserburgh harbour, but I wish also to protest emphatically against the administration of the Public Works Loans Board as far as Peterhead harbour is concerned.
The Question is that I report the Bill, as amended, to the House. The hon. Member cannot discuss the merits of the Bill.
§ Mr. BOOTHBY
Surely, I am entitled to criticise the administration of the Public Works Loans Board in order to show that it is indefensible that—
I am afraid the hon. Member cannot raise that on the Question that I do report the Bill to the House. That is the only Question before the Committee.
§ Bill, as amended, reported.
§ Order read for consideration of Bill, as amended.
Commander Sir BOLTON EYRES MONSELL
On a point of Order. If the Order were to be taken now, it would be called "Now," while "This day" means To-morrow. I submit that we cannot take two Orders in the same sitting.
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
I cannot agree with the right hon. Member for Evesham (Sir B. Eyres Monsell) that "This day" means "To-morrow." We do mean by "This day" at the next day's sitting. We do not mean "now."
Bill, as amended, to be considered To-morrow.
