HL Deb 13 July 1922 vol 51 cc425-6

Clause 3, page 2, line 14, at end insert as a new subsection:

("(3) This Act shall continue in force until the thirty-first day of December, nineteen hundred and twenty-three, and no longer, unless Parliament otherwise determines, and nothing in this Act shall affect the operation of the Summer Time Act, 1916, or any Order in Council made under that Act.")


The third Amendment has been, made for two reasons. One is to make it clear that the Bill, as amended, will not affect summer time this year. That has been done by Order in Council, as I explained before. The second reason is that this makes summer time an annual measure instead of a permanent one. The question will come up every year with the Expiring Laws (Continuance) Act.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(The Earl of Onslow.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
