HC Deb 29 July 1965 vol 717 cc845-6
Mr. William Hannan (Glasgow, Maryhill)

I beg to move in Clause 37, page 22, line 6, after "payment", to insert "to him".

Mr. Deputy-Speaker

With this Amendment it would be convenient to discuss, at the same time, the following three Amendments standing in the name of the hon. Member for Glasgow, Mary-hill (Mr. Hannan), which are in similar terms.

Mr. Hannan

In Committee, particularly on Clause 37, I raised the point that the phrasing here did not make quite clear on whose responsibility and to whom and by whom such fees for searches should be paid. These Amendments emphasise that the fees are to be paid to the registrar and not by him, and I hope that my hon. Friend will be able to accept them.

Mrs. Hart

I am glad to accept these Amendments because they make for greater clarity. We discussed the point in Committee and I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Maryhill (Mr. Hannan) for enabling us to make the Bill a little bit better.

Amendment agreed to.
