HC Deb 04 June 1930 vol 239 cc2185-98

Order for Consideration of Lords Amendments read.

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. William Graham)

With your permission, Mr. Speaker, I would like to offer a few general observations to the House in regard to the Lords Amendments. Many of the Amendments which we have to consider this afternoon are purely drafting in character, and there are one or two which make the Clauses in the Bill clearer, and I should propose to ask the House to agree to those Amendments.


We must first propose the Question, "That the Lords Amendments be now considered."

Motion made, and Question, "That the Lords Amendments be now considered," put and agreed to.—[Mr. W. Graham.]

Lords Amendments considered accordingly.

  1. CLAUSE 1.—(Schemes regulating production, supply and sale of coal.) 164 words
  2. cc2186-98
  3. CLAUSE 2.—(Provisions of central scheme.) 4,765 words
