§ Read 3a (according to Order).
§ Schedule: Clause 3 (2)—
The following expressions used in the Harbours Docks and Piers Clauses Act 1847 as incorporated with the Ayr Harbour Order 1893 shall have the following respective meanings (that is to say):—
The expressions "packet boat" and "post office packet" mean respectively a vessel employed by or under the Post Office or the Admiralty for the conveyance under contract of postal packets as defined by the Post Office Act 1908 and the expression "post office bag of letters" means a mail bag as defined by the same Act.
§ Provided that nothing in the Harbours Docks and Piers Clauses Act 1847 or in this Order shall extend to exempt from rates or duties any such vessel as aforesaid if she also conveys passengers or goods for hire.
§ LORD STANMORE
My Lords, I have a small Amendment to move. It is that the words "as incorporated with the Ayr Harbour Order, 1893," be omitted from Clause 3 (2) of the Schedule. These words are unnecessary, because by Clause 2 of the Order the Harbour Docks and Piers Clauses Act, 1847, is incorporated with the Order.
Schedule, Clause 3, page 7, lines 19 and 20, leave out ("as incorporated with the Ayr Harbour Order, 1893").—(Lord Stanmore.)
§ On Question, Amendment agreed to.
§ Bill passed, and returned to the Commons.
