HC Deb 14 February 1949 vol 461 cc839-40

6.18 p.m.

The Attorney-General (Sir Hartley Shawcross)

I beg to move, in page 3, line 25, at the end, to add: Provided that where, in a case falling within paragraph (m) of this subsection, the jury was summoned from a franchise in circumstances in which the bailiff thereof is charged with the duty of summoning jurors, that bailiff shall be the appropriate officer. Almost every Amendment standing in the Home Secretary's name on the Notice Paper today is either a drafting or a machinery Amendment. This little Amendment in my right hon. Friend's name is a machinery one which is self-explanatory.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 3 and 4 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
