HC Deb 25 July 1957 vol 574 c735

Lords Amendment: In page 5, line 48, leave out "and".

9.46 p.m.

The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Mr. J. B. Godber)

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

It may be convenient also to discuss the next five Amendments.

Mr. Speaker

That will be convenient.

Mr. Godber

These Amendments are drafting Amendments, in that they refer to the position of sugar beet within the long-term guarantees. The original wording of the Clause did not give us all that we wished in respect of bringing sugar beet entirely within Clause 2, subsections (3)and (4). That was corrected in the Amendments in another place.

Mr. Frederick Willey (Sunderland, North)

I rise only to say that we accept this and the following Amendments as being Amendments which will make the Bill clearer.

Question put and agreed to.

Further Lords Amendments made: In page 5, line 49, leave out "or to be determined".

In page 6, line 1, after "order" insert: and to the arrangements in force under the said section one".

In line 2, after "references" insert "respectively".

In line 3, leave out from "1956" to first "for" in line 4 and insert: to the prices initially determined under the said section seventeen".

In line 5, at end add: and to the arrangements in force under the said section seventeen, and the power to give directions under the proviso to subsection (4)of section two of this Act shall be exercisable in relation to home grown beet as if any directions under the said section seventeen were an order under the said section one."—[Mr. Godber.]
