HC Deb 08 May 1941 vol 371 c1044
The Attorney-General

I beg to move, in page 23, line 17, to leave out from "into," to the first "the," in line 19.

This Amendment deals with a point which was raised by the hon. Member for Nelson and Colne (Mr. Silverman) during the Second Reading Debate when he pointed out that circumstances might arise which could not reasonably be contemplated by the parties. We hope that the possibilities which he contemplated will not materialise. I therefore think it is a good point. These words are difficult to apply and necessarily narrow, and may well be omitted.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made:

In page 23, line 29, after "Act," insert: (other than those mentioned in paragraph (c) and paragraph (d) of the proviso to that Sub-section)."—[The Attorney-General.]

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 26 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
