HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 cc651-2

Lords Amendment: In page 4, line 37, leave out "and."

Mr. Cross

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

This Amendment and the next one deal with the same point. They are very little more than drafting Amendments. The object is to ensure that the Board of Trade shall have power to realise securities which have been deposited with them in bankruptcy, and that the proceeds shall be handed over to the trustee banks.

Subsequent Lords Amendments to page 5, line 35, agreed to.
