HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 c663

Lords Amendment: In page 26, line 21, at the end, insert: (2) If either House of Parliament, within the period of forty days beginning with the day on which any such rules or regulations as aforesaid have been laid before that House, resolves that the rules or regulations shall cease to have effect, the rules or regulations shall thereupon become void, without prejudice, however, to the validity of anything previously done thereunder or to the making of new rules or regulations. In reckoning any such period of forty days as aforesaid no account shall be taken of any time during which Parliament is dissolved or prorogued, or during which both Houses are adjourned for more than four days.

11.22 p.m.

Mr. Cross

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

This Amendment makes provision for Parliament by means of an adverse Resolution, to set aside rules or regulations which have been laid before Parliament.

Subsequent Lords Amendments to page 27, line 12, agreed to.
