HC Deb 07 December 1949 vol 470 cc2035-6

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this be the Third Schedule to the Bill."

Mr. Ede

It will be necessary, as a result of an Amendment we carried yesterday, to add to the list of non-county boroughs retaining commissions of the peace. It would have been an imposition on the Committee, and on the Chairman, to have put that Amendment down for considerdation tonight, because it would have meant the Chairman having to read out a long list of boroughs which hon. Members could not possibly have checked at the time. We shall therefore submit the necessary Amendment to give effect to the decision of the Committee when we come to the Report stage. Hon. Members will then have the opportunity of seeing the list, so that if there should be any question with regard to inclusion or exclusion they will have the opportunity of raising the matter.

Question put, and agreed to.
