House in Committee (according to Order).

Clauses 1 to 5, inclusive, agreed to, with Amendments.

Clause 6 (Payments out of Pee Fund).


said, it had only just come to his knowledge—for there were secrets connected with the fees in question, which it took some time to discover—that there was a sum of £1,200 which under an Act of Parliament was available from certain ecclesiastical fees, now waiting at the office of the Bounty Board for some one to claim it. He intended, therefore, on the Report to bring up an Amendment inviting their Lordships to give authority to the Governors of Queen Anne's Bounty to appropriate this sum of £1,200 for the purposes of the Pee Fund mentioned in this Bill.

Clause agreed to.

An Amendment moved, and, on Question, resolved in the negative.

Amendments made: The Report thereof to be received on Tuesday next, and Bill to be printed, as amended. (No. 187.)
