HC Deb 17 July 1939 vol 350 c2


Lords Amendments considered.

The Chairman of Ways and Means (Sir Dennis Herbert)

The bulk of these numerous Amendments consist of alterations made in order to give effect to an undertaking given in Committee of the House of Commons, to bring the Bill into conformity with the Water Undertakings Bill, which is now being considered by a Joint Committee of both Houses. Other Amendments deal with the correction of a new Clause inserted in the House of Commons under a misapprehension, and certain protective provisions and all the remainder are purely drafting Amendments.
