HC Deb 04 March 1947 vol 434 c345

9.15 p.m.

The Secretary of State for Home Affairs (Mr. Ede)

I beg to move, in page I, line 7, to leave out "while serving," and to insert "in consequence of service."

This is a drafting point that was raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Northampton (Mr. Paget) on the Committee stage. It does more clearly indicate that people are entitled to pensions under this Measure.

Amendment agreed to.

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

Bill reported, with an Amendment; as amended (in Committee and on recommittal) considered.
