§ 3.30 p.m.
§ Mr. O. Poole
On a point of Order. There is no Amendment on the Order Paper in page 17, line 6. Surely, the next Amendment is that in page 18, line 32?
§ Mr. Glenvil Hall
I beg to move, in page 18, line 32, at the end, to insert:7. The fee payable on the issue of a certificate of a death for the purposes of this Schedule shall be one shilling.5708. The Statutory Instruments Act, 1946, shall apply to a statutory instrument containing regulations made for the purposes of this Schedule in like manner as if it had been made by a Minister of the Crown.This new paragraph provides for a reduced fee of 1s. for certificates of death issued for the purposes of the Schedule. The normal charge for the death certificate is 25. 7d. This paragraph extends to policies taken out under the Bill a concession in the charge for certificates which has been enjoyed by insurers with friendly societies for many years.
§ Mr. O. Poole
The point which the right hon. Gentleman has mentioned is quite acceptable but, in view of the fact that the right hon. Gentleman himself has had difficulty in following the order of the Amendments because of the speed with which we have been carrying out our discussions, I would like to call attention to the gross discourtesy of the hon. Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Mr. Mack) in interrupting my hon. and learned Friend the Member for. Brighton (Mr. Marlowe) when he was making his second intervention in this Debate. We on this side of the House greatly resent it, and I hope that the hon. Gentleman will not be encouraged.
§ Amendment agreed to.
