HL Deb 30 June 1898 vol 60 cc605-6

My Lords, I have put down several Amendments on the Paper, some of them being almost entirely verbal, and the others to meet certain objections which have been brought to my notice by noble Lords and others, on behalf of the owners of traction engines. I will explain my Amendments as the clauses arise. My first Amendment is a purely verbal one, and is as follows— Page 1, line 14, after '1861' insert 'as amended by this Act.' Amendment agreed to.


My next Amendment is also a verbal one. It is— Page 1, line 20, leave out 'one tree or log of timber of.' It is ridiculous that a tree or a log of timber should be supposed to weigh 16 "tons, and therefore the words are unnecessary.

Amendment agreed to.

Question put— That clause 1, as amended, stand part of the Bill.

Motion agreed to.
