HC Deb 22 July 1959 vol 609 cc1416-44

Order read for consideration of Lords Amendments.

9.44 p.m.

The Minister of Labour and National Service (Mr. Iain Macleod)

I beg to move. That the Lords Amendments be now considered.

There are 16 Amendments in front of us and I propose to move that we agree with each of them. They come from, or have their inspiration in, both sides of another place. I think that the Bill was there treated in a way that we treated it throughout its passage in the House of Commons. I do not propose, therefore, to make separate speeches on each of the Amendments unless there are points which hon. Members would like me to explain, in which case I will be very glad to do so.

Question put and agreed to.

Lords Amendments considered accordingly.
