HC Deb 29 June 1938 vol 337 cc2051-2

10.16 p.m.

Mr. Ramsbotham

I beg to move, in page 17, line 22, to leave out "of any specified class in the manner specified in the scheme," and to insert: in the manner specified in the scheme in the case of such classes of premises as may be so specified. This Amendment is very little more than a drafting Amendment. It might be held under the Bill as it stands that a factory rationalisation scheme could contain particulars for the variation of producers' licences in respect only of the classes already in existence, and that the scheme could not itself state what the classes were to be. The intention of the Bill, of course, is that a rationalisation scheme shall lay down the classes of premises to which the proposals for varying the licence conditions relate. The Amendment makes the condition clear.

Amendment agreed to.
