§ VISCOUNT KNUTSFORD
I should like to ask the noble Lord the Chancellor of the Duchy whether he is aware that in the Money-Lending Bill which was circulated yesterday a very important Amendment, which I had the honour to introduce, and which the noble Lord accepted, was omitted?
§ LORD JAMES OF HEREFORD
The noble Viscount is quite right. The Bill was circulated with his Amendment and another very important Amendment omitted. The Amendments were very numerous and complicated, and these omissions were an accident, which might occur to the most, careful person. Still, I much regret that they should have occurred, but the moment the error was discovered steps were taken to correct it. A new edition of the Bill, with the noble Viscount's Amendment included, has been printed and circulated.
