HC Deb 17 May 1934 vol 289 c2036

Not amended (in the Standing Committee), considered.

Mr. DEPUTY - SPEAKER (Captain Bourne)

The proposed new Clause—(Powers of land court)—which stands on the Order Paper in the name of the right hon. and gallant Member for Caithness and Sutherland (Major Sir A. Sinclair) and other hon. Members, is outside the scope of the Bill

8.16 p.m.


I do not wish to contest your Ruling, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, and I appreciate the difficulty which arises in putting down Amendments to what is essentially a Money Bill. At the same time, I would bring to your notice the fact that under this Money Bill there is an admitted change of policy, and this Amendment was put on the Paper with the object of raising one of the points relating to that matter. I realise that the new Clause is out of order on the present occasion, but I take this opportunity of expressing the hope that on the Third Reading of the Bill we may have a wider opportunity of referring to what is being done in this Money Bill.

Bill ordered to be read the Third time upon Tuesday, 29th May.
