HC Deb 12 July 1938 vol 338 cc1147-8

4.51 P.m.

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Captain Euan Wallace)

I beg to move, in page 8, line 27, to leave out "Section eleven of the Finance Act, 1925, or."

This Amendment and the next three Amendments to Clause 7 are really consequential on the addition of the new Clause 6 to the Bill. Section 11 of the Finance Act, 1925, will cease to apply, and the reference to that Section becomes unnecessary. That covers this Amendment and the next one. The other two Amendments which are to be moved to this Clause are made necessary because Section 3 of the Finance Act is being repealed by the new Clause, and it is therefore necessary to reproduce in full the definition of positive and negative cinematograph films. There is a further Amendment in this group—that is the Amendment in the name of my right hon. Friend to be moved on the Fifth Schedule.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendments made:

In page 8, line 28, leave out "relate," and insert "relates."

In line 39, leave out "or negative."

In page 9, line 1, leave out from the beginning to the first "or," in line 2, and insert: (that is to say, a cinematograph film containing a picture for exhibition, whether developed or not) or a negative cinematograph film (that is to say, a cinematograph film containing a photograph, whether developed or not, from which positive cinematograph films can be printed)."—[Captain Wallace.]
