§ Motion made, and Question proposed, That the Clause stand part of the Bill.
§ Mr. Healy
The Northern Ireland Government have got completely out of the undertaking they gave in the 1920 Act They were obliged to pay£5,000 towards the Governor's salary. The Joint Exchequer Board, which I believe is in a unique position in that it meets only every 10 years, has reduced the liability of the Northern Ireland Government to£2,000. Now the Northern Ireland Government want to get out of all their liability.
§ The Joint Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Sir Hugh Lucas-Tooth)
On a point of order. I think that the hon. Gentleman is not aware that Clause 1 has been added to the Bill and that we are now discussing Clause 2.
§ The Chairman
Yes. I was looking for a reference to this in the Clause. It is in Clause 1, I am afraid, and we have passed that.
§ Question put and agreed to.
§ Clause ordered to stand part of the Bill.
§ Clauses 3 and 4 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
