HC Deb 20 December 1937 vol 330 c1738

11.5 p.m.

Mr. Keeling

I beg to move, in page 28, line 7, after "date," to insert "on or."

In Clause 31 it is laid down more than once that something is to be done on a particular date, not before it. This Amendment corrects what seems to be the obvious omission from Clause 32 of the word "on," and I am sure the Government will accept it.

Captain Crookshank

The Amendment merely makes a grammatical correction, and we accept it.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 33, 34 and 35 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
