HL Deb 20 May 1930 vol 77 cc868-9

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


My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Sandhurst, called my attention to Clause 1 (4), in which he said the drafting was really confused and difficult to understand. I have taken the opportunity of communicating with the proper authorities. Unfortunately, there has not been time for the Parliamentary draftsman to prepare an improved draft for the Committee stage, but I should propose to put it down for Third Reading. In any ease, it is only a drafting Amendment. I beg to move that the House do resolve itself into Committee.

Moved, That the House do now resolve itself into Committee.—(Earl Russell.)

On Question, Motion agreed to; House in Committee accordingly: Bill reported without amendment.
