HC Deb 28 April 1948 vol 450 c474

7.45 p.m.

The Lord Advocate

I beg to move, in page 25, line 17, to leave out "disposition of," and to insert: transfer of any interest in the. This Amendment and the two following Amendments may be taken together. They have been introduced in order to get rid of a difficulty raised by the right hon. and learned Gentleman the Member for Hillhead (Mr. J. S. C. Reid) which arose during the Committee stage in view of the technical connotation of the word "disposition" under Scottish law. In order to eliminate any possible doubt we have introduced these Amendments which get rid of the difficulty which was raised.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendments made: In page 25, line 18, leave out "other than a testamentary disposition," and insert: otherwise than by a testamentary disposition or by operation of law.

In line 21, leave out "disposition," and insert "transfer."—[The Lord Advocate.]
