HL Deb 25 July 1938 vol 110 cc1113-4

Clause 15, page 11, line 35, at the beginning, insert ("Subject to the provisions of this section")

Page 22, line 9, at end, insert: ("(3) Nothing in this section shall affect any of the following enactments, that is to say—

  1. (a) Sections thirty-seven to forty of the Charitable Trusts Act, 1853.
  2. (b) Section thirty-six of the Building Societies Act, 1874;
  3. (c) Section four of the Telegraph Act, 1878;
  4. (d) Section ten of the Guardianship of Infants Act, 1886;
  5. (e) Section one of the Parliamentary Elections (Returning Officers) Act (1875) Amendment Act, 1886.")


My Lords, these Amendments relate to the same matter. They are savings for appeals from the Mayor's Court, which under existing law go, not to the Court of Appeal, but elsewhere. It really was not intended to prevent these cases going to the Chancery Judge as directed under the Charitable Trusts Act, 1853, or the Guardianship of Infants Act, 1886, or going, under the Telegraph Act, 1878, to the Railway and Canal Commission or under the Parliamentary Elections (Return of Officers') Act (1875) Amendment Act, 1886, to the King's Bench Division. These appeals were saved from the operation of the general provision relating to County Court appeals by Section 192 of the County Courts Act, 1934, and they should be accordingly excluded here from the provisions of the clause as mentioned in the proposed Amendments. I beg to move.

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

On Question, Motion agreed to.
