Lords Amendment: In page 2, line 5, at the beginning, insert: For the purpose of securing the prompt discharge of their functions under this Act.

3.30 p.m.

The Minister of National Insurance (Mr. James Griffiths)

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

With permission I will refer at the same time to the Amendment to line 6. Both are designed to carry out an undertaking which I gave during Committee stage.

Lieut.-Colonel Elliot (Scottish Universities)

I understand that all these Amendments were agreed to mostly without a Division in the other place and that these two in particular were in pursuit of an undertaking given by the right hon. Gentleman.

Question put, and agreed to.
