HC Deb 01 July 1948 vol 452 cc2440-1

Lords Amendment: In page 55, line 24, leave out "by the Secretary of State or," and insert: "whether on the requirement of the Secretary of State or not."

Mr. T. Fraser

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

Previously there had been some doubt about whether the sub-committees of the committees which are to be set up under the Clause would be expected to carry out the directions given to them directly by the Secretary of State, and the purpose of the Amendment is to make it quite clear that the sub-committees in each case receive directions from the main committees.
