§ Mr. Jay
I beg to move Amendment No. 225, in page 53, line 7, to leave out from the beginning to '43' and to insert:`sections 25 to 34 (both inclusive)'.
§ Amendment No. 226 is associated with this Amendment.
§ We are dealing with the time at which the Clauses in Part I of the Bill are to come into operation. Clauses 32 and 18 were added to the Bill in Committee after Clause 57 had been considered. The Amendment brings Clause 32, which is concerned with investigation of share dealings, into operation three months after the passing of the Bill, which is the date on which the Clauses with which it is concerned come into operation. Amendment No. 226 brings Clause 18, which refers to the number of employees and their wages, into operation six months after the passing of the Bill, which is the same date as most of the other Clauses concerned with information in the directors' report.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Further Amendment made: No. 226, in page 53, line 12, leave out 19 'and insert 18'—[Mr. Jay.]
