HC Deb 29 July 1965 vol 717 cc869-70

Lords Amendment No. 11: In page 9, line 6, leave out "accounts of" and insert: statement of account prepared by".

Mr. Willis

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

Perhaps it might be convenient to discuss, at the same time, the remaining five Lords Amendments, Mr. Speaker.

Mr. Speaker

If the House so pleases.

Mr. Willis

This and the remaining Amendments are drafting, designed to bring the other subsections into conformity with the language used in subsection (1).

Mr. J. Grimond (Orkney and Shetland)

Do I understand that there is no difference between an account and a statement of account?

Mr. Willis

As I understand it, no. At least, there is no difference so far as the intention of the Clause is concerned. Subsection (1) uses the words "a statement of account" and the Amendments bring the other subsections into line with that wording.

Question put and agreed to.

Remaining Lords Amendments agreed to.
