HL Deb 28 November 1927 vol 69 c306

Read 3a(according to Order).

Schedule [Repeals]:


My Lords, I beg to move, on behalf of the Lord Chancellor, the Amendments which stand on the Paper in his name, to omit certain sections from the Repeal Schedule.

Amendments moved—

Schedule, page 75, line 33, second column, leave out ("Section twelve")

Schedule, page 75, line 38, second column, leave out ("First and Second Schedules") and insert ("Second Schedule")

Schedule, page 124, line 35, second column, leave out ("Sections fourteen, fifteen, and twenty-nine") and insert ("Sections fourteen and fiftten")

Schedule, page 124, line 48, second column, leave out ("Third and Fourth Schedules") and insert ("Fourth Schedule")—(The Earl of Plymouth.)


My Lords, as Chairman of the Joint Committee which reported this Bill to the House as being in their opinion, with the Amendments they had made, entirely correct, I think I should like to say that the Amendments do not correct anything that could be called a mistake in the Report which the Joint Committee made, but an inconsistency of two clauses which are really doing the same thing has made it desirable that the inconsistency should be corrected. I have not the least doubt that in the Joint Committee, if the matter had been called to their attention, the inconsistency would have been removed. I therefore, on behalf of that Committee, cordially welcome the Amendments which the Lord Chancellor has been good enough to put upon the Paper.

Bill passed, and sent to the Commons.

House adjourned at twenty minutes past six o'clock.
