HC Deb 02 July 1935 vol 303 cc1810-1

9.26 p.m.


I beg to move, in page 53, line 18, at the end, to insert: (3) This section shall come into operation on the first day of November, nineteen hundred and thirty-five. The purpose of this Amendment is to make this Clause operate at a later date than the rest of the Bill for the simple reason that the Commissioners who are to be appointed to hold public inquiries are to be selected from a panel set up by the Lord President of the Court of Session and others. It is to allow time after the rest of the Bill comes into operation for this panel to be constituted. For that reason, the operation of the Clause is postponed until 1st November.

Amendment agreed to.
