HC Deb 05 February 1948 vol 446 c1917

Order for consideration, as amended, read.

3.49 P.m.

Mr. Peake (Leeds, North)

I beg to move, That the Bill be re-committed to a Committee of the whole House in respect of the Amendments in Clause 7, page 5, line 32, Clause 8, page 5, lines 39 and 42, page 6, line 6, Clause 9, page 7, lines 35, 37 and 48, Clause 10, page 8, lines 16 and 28, and of the new Clauses (Compensation for injurious affection) and (Compensation for loss pending rehabilitation), standing on the Notice Paper in the name of Mr. Peake, and of the Amendment in Clause 11, page 9, line 30, standing on the Notice Paper in the name of Mr. Turton. I can forgo my arguments for moving this Motion if the Financial Secretary will indicate by a movement of his head whether he intends to accept it.

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Glenvil Hall)

We see no reason why we should recommit, but, as the request has come from the right hon. Gentleman and his hon. Friends, we are very willing to accept this Motion, if it will save the time of a long discussion, in order that we may get on with the work.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill immediately considered in Committee.
