HC Deb 01 March 1944 vol 397 c1447
Mr. Leslie (Sedgefield)

I beg to move, in page 11, line 20, to leave out "fifty" and to insert "one hundred."

Sir I. Albery

On a point of Order. Is the hon. Member moving a manuscript Amendment?

Mr. Leslie

Yes. In the Committee stage we increased the penalty to £100 in Clause 11, but you will observe that in Clause 14 it still remains £50. All this Amendment proposes to do is to put Clause 14 in line with Clause 11 and increase the penalty to £100.

Mr. Bellenger

In Clause 11, as my hon. Friend has explained, the Government accepted an Amendment to increase the penalty from £50 to £100, and all that is being asked now is that in Clause 14 the same procedure shall prevail, namely, to increase £50 to £100.

Mr. McCorquodale

If the House wishes to accept this Amendment, we shall not oppose it.

Amendment agreed to.
