HC Deb 02 June 1960 vol 624 c1645

Lords Amendment: In page 1, line 9, leave out "furthering" and insert: exercising their functions under this Act in such a manner as to further".

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Aviation (Mr. Geoffrey Rippon)

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

Mr. G. R. Strauss (Vauxhall)

I do not think that anyone would disagree with the Amendment. It does not seem to make the slightest change in the Bill. If, however, anybody thinks that the wording of the Bill would be improved by the Amendment, we would not object. We do not oppose the Amendment.

Mr. William Shepherd (Cheadle)

It often happens that if one puts in a few words that are not necessary one ends by putting in a lot more unnecessary words.

Question put and agreed to.
