HC Deb 29 July 1946 vol 426 cc743-4

Lords Amendment: In page 47, line 10, leave out from "Minister" to end of paragraph, and insert: may, if he thinks fit, make the order.

Mr. Ivor Thomas

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment".

Paragraph 2 of the Third Schedule was included to meet the request of the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton), but the words which we accepted from him are suitable only where the Order is made by an inferior authority and not by the Minister himself. This Amendment adapts the language to cases where the Minister makes the Order himself.

Remaining Lords Amendments agreed to. (Several with Special Entries.)

Committee appointed to draw up a Reason to be assigned to the Lords for disagreeing to one of their Amendments to the Bill: Colonel J. R. H. Hutchison, Mr. Malcolm MacMillan, Mr. Mikardo, Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore, Mr. Ivor Thomas: Three to be the Quorum.— [Mr. Ivor Thomas.]

To withdraw immediately.

Reason for disagreeing with one of the Lords Amendments to the Bill reported, and agreed to: To be communicated to the Lords.
