HC Deb 12 May 1948 vol 450 c2128

Lord's Amendment: In page 2, line 21, after "securing" insert "that full use is made of."

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of National Insurance (Mr. Steele)

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

We have emphasised on more than one occasion that we should make full use of people with local knowledge and experience. The Amendment is designed for this purpose.

Lieut.-Colonel Elliot

I understand that this Amendment was moved in another place by a noble Lord who was a Member of the Opposition and that it was accepted by the Government. I commend it to the House.

Question put, and agreed to.
