HC Deb 06 February 1945 vol 407 c1945
Mr. Bevin

I beg to move, in page 18, line 24, leave out "of five years."

This gives effect to the undertaking I gave during the Committee stage. Instead of inserting five years, the Amendment makes the period certain until the end of 1950, and then subject to the Expiring Laws Continuance Act. The next Amendment is consequential.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In line 24, at end, insert: and ending on the thirty-first day of December, nineteen hundred and fifty, and no longer unless Parliament otherwise determines."—[Mr. Bevin.]
