HC Deb 17 February 1944 vol 397 cc356-64
Mr. Keeling (Twickenham)

I beg to move, in page 2, line 2, to leave out "for the purposes of."

This Amendment and the following one in my name have been put down at the request of the Port of London Authority, and their purpose is merely to make it clearer than the Bill as drafted does that the status quo of these tax-free payments remains.

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Assheton)

Since this Amendment which has been moved by my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Mr. Keeling) merely clarifies and makes more certain the original terms of the Bill, I have great pleasure in accepting it.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In line 8, leave out from "payments)," to the end of line 10, and insert: shall continue to have effect as if the substitution made by this subsection had not been made."—[Mr. Keeling.]

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

Clause 3 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
