HL Deb 10 December 1925 vol 62 cc1353-4

Amendments reported (according to Order).

LORD DESBOROUGH moved, after Clause 6, to insert the following new clause: All byelaws made by the Admiralty under this Act and all regulations made by the Secretary of State as to the conveyance of petroleum spirit by road shall be laid before each House of Parliament as soon as may be after they are made, and, if an Address is presented to His Majesty by either House of Parliament within the next subsequent forty clays on which that House has sat next after any such byelaw or regulation is laid before it, praying that the byelaw or regulation may be annulled, it shall thenceforth be void, but without prejudice to the validity of anything previously done thereunder or to the making of any new byelaw or regulation.

The noble Lord said: My Lords, this Amendment makes no difference to the Bill. The Admiralty agree that they should come in on the same terms as the Homo Office with regard to giving notice of any regulations which they propose to make concerning petroleum spirit, and they are quite satisfied with this new clause.

Amendment moved— Page 3, line 42, at end insert the said new clause.—(Lord Desborough.)

On Question, Amendment agreed to.
