HC Deb 24 July 1934 vol 292 c1748

The expenses incurred for the purposes of this Act by the licensing authority or by the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, the Fishery Board for Scotland or any other person acting under the authority of the Board of Trade (including sums required to pay the remuneration and expenses of whale fishery inspectors) shall be defrayed out of moneys provided by Parliament; and all fees received under this Act by the licensing authority or by any such other authority or person as is mentioned in the foregoing provisions of this section, and (subject to the provisions of section five of the Criminal Justice Administration Act, 1914, and of any corresponding enactment of the Parliament of Northern Ireland) all fines recovered by virtue of this Act, shall he paid into the Exchequer of the United Kingdom.—[Mr. Elliot.]

Brought up, and read the First time.


I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time."

This Clause is the same as the original Clause 16 in the Bill, except that the wording in lines 7 to 9 is altered to ensure that it does not over-ride the Criminal Justice Administration Act, 1914. It would be a source of grave uneasiness to me if I thought I had done any such a thing in face of hon. and learned Members. We are now bringing the Clause into conformity with the majestic structure of British justice.

Clause added to the Bill.
