HC Deb 04 March 1947 vol 434 cc344-5
Mr. Ede

I beg to move, in page 2, line 15, to leave out Subsections (2) to (4), and to insert: No Order in Council shall be made under this Act unless, after copies of the draft thereof have been laid before Parliament, each House presents an Address to His Majesty praying that the Order may be made. That carries out the promise I made earlier. I hope that it will be acceptable to the Committee.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 3 and 4 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Bill reported, with an Amendment; as amended, considered.

Motion made, and Question proposed,

"That the Bill now be read the Third time."

Mr. Ede

I would like to express my thanks to the House for the temper in which this discussion has been conducted, and for the rapid progress they have enabled the Government to make with this Measure.

Bill accordingly read the Third time, and passed.
