HC Deb 18 July 1933 vol 280 c1752

Lords Amendment: la page 1, line 8, leave out "first," and insert "seventh."

7.0 p.m.


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

There has been some difference of opinion as to the exact date and the date inserted in the Amendment is the one now agreed to.


I beg to second the Motion.

I wish to thank my hon. Friend for the courteous way in which be has met the objection, and made the Bill a completely agreed Bill.

7.1 p.m.


I bad some opposition to this Bill on the Committee stage, but my objections, I admit, have been to a large extent met. I am rather taken by surprise by this last Amendment. I did not know of the alteration. I agree for the moment, but I am not quite sure. Am I to understand that the date inserted means a diminution of the proposed close season suggested by the Committee, or an extension? I understand it is reducing the close season. If so, the Lords are really meeting my point of view.
