HC Deb 04 June 1930 vol 239 cc2337-8

Lords Amendment: In page 26, line 15, leave out "July, nineteen hundred and thirty," and insert "January, nineteen hundred and thirty-one."

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."—[Mr. W. Graham.]


May I ask a question? We are changing the date of the Bill. That is a most important change, and I would like to ask why it is being made. I would like to know whether it is because there would not otherwise be time to carry out the necessary arrangements. This can hardly be said to be consequential on the other Amendments in the Bill.


The reason for this change is exactly as given by the hon. and gallant Member. This change is necessary because of the much later date at which the Bill becomes law. We are making the alteration for that and for no other reason.

Committee appointed to draw up Reasons to be assigned to the Lords for disagreeing to certain of their Amendments to the Bill.

Committee nominated of Mr. William Graham, Mr. Turner, Mr. Thomas Williams, Mr. Foot, and Commodore King.

Three to be the quorum.—[Mr. W. Graham.]

To withdraw immediately.

Reasons for disagreeing to certain Lords Amendments reported, and agreed to.

To be communicated to the Lords.—[Mr. W. Graham.]
