HL Deb 21 June 1923 vol 54 cc555-6

Order of the Day read for the House to be put into Committee on re-commitment of the Bill.


My Lords, before I put the Motion that this House go into Committee, I think that, for your convenience, I should explain the procedure which I suggest you should follow in dealing with this Bill. When the Bill was before me in the Unopposed Bill Committee there was a provision in the Bill which I was not certain came within the authority derived from the original Act, and as I was not satisfied, and had no reason given me for its inclusion, I struck it out. A representative of the Ministry of Transport has since communicated with me, and I am now satisfied that it is right and proper that the Bill should be in its original form. I therefore propose, when we go into Committee, to put the Question that the Amendment proposed in the Select Commitee be negatived.

Moved, That the House do now resolve itself into Committee.—(Lord Somer-leyton.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.

House in Committee accordingly.

[The EARL OF DONOUGHMORE in the Chair.]

Amendment proposed by the Committee negatived: Bill reported without amendment.
