HC Deb 05 July 1934 vol 291 cc2148-9

7.53 p.m.


I beg to move, in page 4, line 10, to leave out the words, any other enactment," and to insert: section fifty-three of and Part II of the Eighth Schedule to the Unemployment Act, 1934. The Amendment is one which I promised to move when the Bill was in Committee. When the Bill was upstairs the Unemployment Act had not passed into law. In a matter in which the appointed day is the crucial date in this Bill and in the Act referred to, I had to say that the thing could not be done without the Secretary of State ordered it. I can now make the position more accurate by putting in these words.

Amendment agreed to.
