HC Deb 15 July 1964 vol 698 cc1288-9

Lords Amendment: In page 4, line 14, at end insert "or".

The Minister of State, Board of Trade (Mr. Edward do Cann)

I beg doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.

The right hon. Member for Battersea, North (Mr. Jay) will appreciate that this also is an Amendment which is intended to bring clarification to the Bill. It was moved by the Opposition in another place, and I hope, therefore, that he will not think it necessary for me to give the House a long or detailed explanation. I say only that we were grateful to the Opposition for their help in this matter.

Mr. Jay

Will the hon. Gentleman just explain what the Bill would have meant had the Amendment not been made? What is the difference?

Question put and agreed to.
