§ THE MARQUESS OF SALISBURY
Perhaps the noble Earl will explain to us the operation of these Amendments. They are not drafting Amendments.
THE EARL OF ONSLOW
The Amendment is to omit the provision for registry in the Channel Islands. It appears that it is not necessary that this should be embodied in the Bill, because it can be done under an Order in Council. It is not important, and I hope it will be agreed to.
§ Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(The Earl of Onslow.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
§ Clause 3:
§ Interpretation, short title and application.
