§ Order read for Consideration of Lords Amendments.
§ 11.27 p.m.
§ Mr. GODFREY NICHOLSON
I beg to move, "That the Lords Amendments be now considered."
These Amendments were inserted in the other place at my instigation. In spite of their formidable appearance, 90 per cent. of them are of a purely drafting or secondary character and the remaining 10 per cent. are, I think I may say with truth, agreed upon by both sides 169 in the industry. I hope the House will agree to the Amendments to-night, so that the Bill can receive the Royal Assent on Friday. I am anxious for that, because it will give the industry six clear months in which to prepare for the coming into operation of the Act.
§ 11.28 p.m.
§ The remaining Orders were read, and postponed.
