HL Deb 25 July 1934 vol 93 c1119

Page 1, line 22, leave out ("impose penalties on") and insert ("prohibit").


My Lords, the sections of the Scottish Act of 1933 mentioned in subsection (2) of Clause 1 do not specify the penalties attached to the acts prohibited by these sections, but merely say that a person who does any such act is guilty of an offence under the Act, the penalty therefor being provided by Section 40. Accordingly the descriptive words "which provisions, impose penalties on the doing of certain acts" are not strictly accurate. If "prohibit" is substituted for "impose penalties on" the descriptive words more aptly fit the Scottish enactment mentioned in the subsection and apply equally well to the English ones. I need hardly say that the Scottish Office have put forward these Amendments. I am very glad to move them.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
