HC Deb 28 April 1948 vol 450 cc467-8
Mr. T. Fraser

I beg to move, in page 22, line 36, to leave out "commencement of Part I," and to insert "passing."

This Amendment and the following Amendment, in line 40, are designed to enable the revision of the panel of arbiters to be carried out immediately after the passing of the Bill without the necessity of bringing the Clause into operation by Order in Council. It is highly desirable that we should be able to bring about this revision of arbiters at a very early date. It is also desirable that the new panel, which has been considerably depleted in recent years, should be set up before Part I of the Bill is brought into operation.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 22, line 40, at end, add: (2) This Section shall come into operation on the passing of this Act."—[Mr. T. Fraser.]
