HL Deb 28 July 1924 vol 58 c1109

Order of the Day for the House to be put into Committee read.


My Lords, in moving that the House do go into Committee, I should like to mention one matter. The noble Earl, Lord Beauchamp, asked me at the end of a long sitting on Tuesday last whether the Regulations to be made under this Bill are to be laid upon the Table and passed unless a Resolution of both Houses is passed against them. Quite inadvertently I answered him wrongly Regulations made under the Weights and Measures Act, 1904, are submitted to Parliament, and, therefore, the same procedure will apply to Regulations made under this Bill. If the noble Earl will look at the Memorandum attached to the Bill he will see that it is referred to in terms. I regret the inaccuracy.

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

On Question, Motion agreed to.

House in Committee accordingly: Bill reported without amendment.
