HC Deb 20 May 1938 vol 336 c772

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill."

Mr. Spens

This Clause deals with a technical point. It refers to a rule of court where it may be doubtful whether the Rules Committee has the right to admit affidavit evidence if the court thinks fit. The object of the Clause is to provide that if the court thinks fit specified facts may be proved at the trial by affidavit without the necessity of bringing the deponent to court.

Question put, and agreed to.
