HL Deb 03 December 1931 vol 83 cc297-8

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


My Lords, in moving that this House do now resolve itself into Committee, I must offer an apology to your Lordships' House and to my noble friend Lord Banbury for describing this Bill, in answer to a question of his, as a Money Bill. Although largely concerned with finance this Bill is not a certified Bill. I hope that my noble friend has not been deterred by this false information from placing any Amendments on the Paper to-day. I feel, however, that it would be difficult to devise Amendments which did not raise the question of Privilege.

Moved, That the House do now resolve itself into Committee.—(Viscount Gage.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.

House in Committee accordingly: Bill reported without amendment.
