HL Deb 28 June 1938 vol 110 cc383-4

Read 3a(according to Order) with the Amendment.

Clause 3:


3. If any person contravenes this Act he shall be liable, on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding fifty pounds and to a further fine not exceeding ten pounds for every day on which the offence continues after conviction there for: Provided…

VISCOUNT BERTIE OF THAME moved, after "contravenes," to insert "the provisions of." The noble Viscount said: My Lords, this is the same Amendment which I ventured to move in Committee, which my noble friend the Earl of Crawford rather brusquely resisted. He said: I think if the Lord Chancellor were to look at this Amendment he would say it was quite tautological and superfluous. It was my noble friend who appealed to the noble and learned Lord on the Woolsack. It was I who went to him and discussed the matter with him, with the result that I have again ventured to put down the Amendment. I beg to move.

On Question, Amendment agreed to.
