HC Deb 08 April 1957 vol 568 c908

Lords Amendment: In page 3, line 31, after "army" insert "marine".

The Joint Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. J. E. S. Simon)

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.

This is a drafting Amendment, the purpose of which is to deal with a lacuna that we left in Clause 3 (2).

Mr. G. R. Mitchison (Kettering)

I am sorry that the Government forgot the Marines, "horse" or otherwise.

Question put and agreed to.
