Lords Amendment: In page 19, line 35, leave out from "the" to end of line 38 and insert:
defender from making any such settlement or disposition, or transferring out of the jurisdiction of the court, or otherwise dealing with, any property belonging to the defender".
§ Lady Tweedsmuir
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.
This is a drafting Amendment intended to improve the wording of the Clause. As it stands the Clause refers to the Court's interdicting the making of a settlement. This is an unusual use of "interdicting" since the Court interdicts a person rather than an action. The Amendment puts this right, without making any change in the substance of the provision, the purpose of which is to prevent a defender in a divorce action from disposing of his property or transferring it out of the Court's jurisdiction so as to defeat an award by the Court to the pursuer under Clause 26.
§ Question put and agreed to.
