HC Deb 27 June 1947 vol 439 cc879-80
Mr. Oliver

I beg to move, in page 4, column 2, line 11, to leave out "or gratuities" and to insert "gratuities or compensation".

While dealing with this Amendment perhaps we could also consider the following Amendment, which embodies the same principle. These Amendments are necessary because in some local superannuation enactments the term "compensation," describing the type of allowances referred to in the Local Government Act of 1937, relates to gratuities. In one Act "compensation" is referred to, and in another Act the same thing is referred to as "gratuities." That difficulty is overcome by the insertion of the words in these Amendments.

Amendment agreed to.

Consequential Amendment made.

Schedule, as amended, agreed to.

Bill reported, with Amendments, as amended, considered; read the Third time, and passed.
