HC Deb 24 July 1967 vol 751 c14

Lords Amendment No. 1: In page 13, line 15, leave out first "is" and insert "has been".

10.34 a.m.

The Postmaster-General (Mr. Edward Short)

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

I think that it might be convenient to consider at the same time all the other Amendments, since they deal with the same point. They are purely drafting Amendments, put forward at the instance of noble Lords of the party opposite, to insert a lot of "has beens" for "is". I am not normally in favour of "has beens", but I think that in this case they make the Schedule easier to follow, and I commend the Amendments to the House.

Question put and agreed to.

Remaining Lords Amendments agreed to.
