HL Deb 16 December 1908 vol 198 c1827

Amendments reported (according to order).


There are two small Amendments which I wish to move consequent upon what took place in this House last night, and I think your Lordships will see that neither is of great importance. The first Amendment, in Clause 6, page 5, line 3, is meant to deal with the case of the Borstal institutions. The point dealt with was raised by the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Alverstone, and this Amendment has been settled upon by agreement between him and the Home Office. I therefore move.

Amendment moved— In page 5, line 3, after the word 'recall,' to insert the words 'and that a person so recalled shall not in any case be detained after the expiration of the said period of six months supervision.'"—(Earl Beauchamp.)


The only other Amendment is consequent upon an Amendment moved by Lord Ashbourne last night and which was agreed to by His Majesty's Government, assimilating the procedure in Scotland to the procedure in England. Under the circumstances the subsection dealing with Scotland becomes unnecessary.

Amendment moved— In page 11, line 27, to leave out subsection (5)."—(Earl Beauchamp.)

Then Standing Order No. XXXIX., considered (according to Order), and dispensed with. Bill read 3a with the Amendments, and passed, and returned to the Commons.
