HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 cc644-5

Lords Amendment: In page 2, line 1, after "servant," insert "or agent."

10.24 p.m.

Mr. Cross

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

This Amendment and the next immediately following deal with the same subject matter. They have as their purpose the insertion after the word "servant" of the words "or agent" in lines 1 and 6. It might be possible for the holder of a principal's licence to circumvent the provision by employing not employés in the direct sense, who are required to have representatives' licences, but to employ agents on a commission basis.

Mr. Speaker

I must point out that these two Amendments raise the question of Privilege. The House can waive it if it chooses to do so.

Question put, and agreed to. —[Special Entry.]

Subsequent Lords Amendments to page 2, line 32, agreed to.
