§ Considered in Committee.
§ [Major Sir WILLIAM ANSTRUTHER-GRAY in the Chair]
§ 11.22 p.m.
As this is a consolidation Measure, I propose, with the leave of the Committee, to put the Clauses in blocks.
§ Clauses 1 to 79 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
§ Clauses 80 to 132 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, That Clauses 133 to 185 stand part of the Bill.
§ The Solicitor-General (Sir Jocelyn Simon)
On a point of order, Sir William, I do not think that there is a Clause 185.
I think that there is. I find myself at variance with the Solicitor-General. I am, at the moment, reading Clause 185. If I may read it to the Committee:(1) This Act may be cited as the Factories Act, 1961.(2) This Act shall come into force on the first day of April, nineteen hundred and sixty-two.1639(3) This Act, except subsections (1) and (2) of section seventy-seven and so much of section one hundred and eighty-three and the Seventh Schedule as repeals the provisions replaced by those subsections, does not extend to Northern Ireland.Surely that is, in fact, a Clause.
§ The Solicitor-General
I apologise, Sir William. I was looking at an earlier print of the Bill before it was further amended.
§ Question put and agreed to.
§ Clause ordered to stand part of the Bill.
§ Schedules I to 7 agreed to.
§ Bill reported, without Amendment; read the Third time and passed, without Amendment.
