HL Deb 21 July 1873 vol 217 cc647-8

Commons Amendment to Lords Amendments and Commons Reasons for disagreeing to one of the Amendments made by the Lords considered (according to Order).

Clause 8 (Power to suspend temporarily restrictive provisions of Act) omitted by the Lords; re-inserted by the Commons.


proposed to agree to the re-instatement of the clause, but to disagree to the Commons Amendment to the new Clause B, inserted by their Lordships, with one exception—namely, to omit the words "hay-harvest" from the new clause.


thought the power should comprehend the period of the hay as well as of the corn-harvest. He thought, however, it would be best to adhere to their Lordships' original decisions and omit the clause altogether.

After a few words from The Earl of KIMBERLEY,

On Question, whether to insist? Resolved in the Negative.

The Amendment to which the Commons have disagreed not insisted on; The Commons Amendment to Lords Amendment disagreed to; and a Committee appointed to prepare Reasons to be offered to the Commons for the Lords disagreeing to the said Amendment; The Committee to meet To-morrow, at Five o'clock.
