HC Deb 28 October 1949 vol 468 c1696
Mr. Blenkinsop

I beg to move, in page 9, line 3, at the end, to add: (2) The Minister may make to the Council, out of moneys provided by Parliament, contributions of such amounts as he may determine towards the expenses of the Council in inspecting and approving for the purposes of the training rules institutions vested in him. This Amendment is made here, like the last, for reasons of Privilege.

Mr. Diamond

I support the Amendment, having regard to the very firm assurance which my hon. Friend gave me when this matter was discussed on the Committee stage of the Financial Resolution, which, for the purpose of accuracy, I have in front of me, and will quote: I would add the assurance that it is the intention to ensure that 100 per cent. reimbursement of all expenses approved by the Minister … will be guaranteed under this wording."—[OFFICIAL REPORT, 21st October, 1949; Vol. 468, cols. 965–6.] In view of that assurance, which, I am sure, could not have been improved on in any circumstances, I am very happy to support the introduction of this subsection.

Amendment agreed to.

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

Clause 14 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
