Lords Amendment: In page 80, line 1, leave out subsection (2) and insert:
(2) No returns, statistics or other information obtained under the foregoing subsection shall, without the consent in writing of the person carrying on the undertaking to which the returns, statistics or other information relate, be disclosed except—
§ Mr. Joynson-Hicks
I beg to move. "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."
This Amendment is in order to provide protection for persons who make returns to the Minister—protecting legally against disclosure all those concerned without the various consents referred to in the Amendment. It brings the provision into line with the provisions of the Statistics of Trade Act, 1947.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Subsequent Lords Amendments, to the Amendment in page 86, line 1, agreed to.
