HC Deb 05 April 1951 vol 486 cc489-90
Mr. McNeil

I beg to move, after "Part I" to insert "or section thirteen." The House will appreciate that offences against the weekly close times are provided for in this Measure. It will also be clear that people offending in this way may do as much harm to the stocks as people offending whom we have been considering in other parts of the Bill. We therefore thought it would be better to bring the penalties into line and this Amendment is to provide that where offences take place they will be liable to forfeiture of gear.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 9, line 9, after "Part I," insert "or section thirteen."—[Mr. McNeil.]
