HC Deb 26 July 1963 vol 681 c2015

Lords Amendment: In page 59, line 43, at beginning insert: With the exception of 73(3) of this Act".

Mr. Whitelaw

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

When subsection (3) was added to Clause 73 a conflict arose between that subsection and Clause 83(2). The provision in Clause 73(3) removes from the scope of the Factories Act certain wholesale warehouses so that they may be dealt with under this Bill. If, however, there are any cases where fish is sold wholesale in such warehouses the wording of Clause 83(2) would have prevented the application of Clause 73(3) to them and in consequence such warehouses would have been left under the Factories Act. This Amendment, a drafting Amendment, is designed to remove this conflict.

Question put and agreed to.
