HC Deb 20 March 1946 vol 420 cc1955-6

Order for Consideration (as amended in the Standing Committee) read.

7.17 p.m.

The Minister of Education (Miss Ellen Wilkinson)

I beg to move, That the Bill be re-committed to a Committee of the Whole House in respect of the Amendments in Clause 1, page 1, line 23, Clause 10, page 6, line 1, and Clause 14, page 7, line 22, the new Clause (Compensation for certain officers of county councils), and the Amendments in Schedule 2, page 14, line 28, and Schedule 2, page 14, line 31, standing on the Notice Paper in my name. In the Committee stage I gave various undertakings to hon. Members on both sides that I would consider their Amendments. I have now done so, and certain of these Amendments are being put forward by me officially. These changes will add, in some cases technically, and in other cases actually, to the charges arising under the Bill. Therefore, it is necessary to recommit.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill immediately considered in Committee.
