HL Deb 05 August 1907 vol 179 c1488

Bill read 3a (according to Order.)


moved to amend Clause 1, Sub-section (1) —by leaving out the word "recognised" before the words "assistants of the clerks of petty sessions at Cork and Belfast," and inserting, at the end of the clause, the words "and approved of by the Lord Lieutenant." He explained that this Amendment had been drafted to meet the point urged at an earlier stage by Lord Ashbourne.

Amendment moved — In page 1, line 9, to leave out the word ' recognised' and in line 12, after the word ' Act' to insert the words ' and approved of by the Lord-Lieutenant.' "—(Lord Denman.)


said that if the Irish Office thought the words moved by the noble Lord met the point adequately and prevented the possibility of doubt he was satisfied.

On Question, Amendment agreed to.

Bill passed, and returned to the Commons.
