Constitution, Procedure, Staff and Expenses of the Commission.

7. The Commission may hold such inquiries as appear to them to be necessary or desirable for the purpose of the proper discharge of their functions.

Before holding any such inquiry the Commission shall give such notice as appears to them best adapted for informing persons affected of the date on which and the place at which the inquiry will be held.

VISCOUNT HALIFAX moved to add to paragraph 7: "and at any such inquiry any person appearing to the person holding the inquiry to be affected may appear either in person or by counsel, solicitor or agent." The noble Viscount said: My Lords, this is an Amendment which I have put down to meet my noble friend Viscount Bertie of Thame, and I hope that it has met him.

Amendment moved— Page 52, line 27, at end insert the said words.—(Viscount Halifax.)


My Lords, I really am very grateful to my noble friend.

On Question, Amendment, agreed to.
