HC Deb 04 June 1964 vol 695 cc1393-4
The Economic Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Maurice Macmillan)

I beg to move Amendment No. 25, in page 36, line 11, at the end to insert: 3. Part III of Schedule 11, so far as applicable in relation to securities of the United Kingdom Government entered in the register of the Bank of Ireland in Dublin shall apply in relation thereto notwithstanding its repeal by the Statute Law Revision Act 1950. This is purely a drafting Amendment, as is the next. Clause 22 applies various items of United Kingdom legislation affecting the National Debt and United Kingdom Government securities held in the Bank of Ireland register in Dublin. The Schedule lists modifications of the National Debt legislation consequential on Clause 22 and which apply certain items of United Kingdom legislation to those securities. These two Amendments correct what were, frankly, two small oversights in drafting this Schedule, and, in moving them, I ask the indulgence of the Committee for this omission.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 36, line 16, after "and", insert "paragraph 6 of Part I of".—[Mr. Maurice Macmillan.]

Schedule, as amended, agreed to.

Clauses 23 and 24 agreed to.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I beg to move, That the Chairman do report Progress and ask leave to sit again.

I think the Committee will feel that we have made very reasonable progress during the day—and I am sure the hon. Gentleman the Member of Sowerby (Mr. Houghton) would not regard it as unreasonable. It would be for the convenience of the Committee if we were to be able to start afresh next week on the new Clauses.

Question put and agreed to.

Committee report Progress; to sit again Tomorrow.
