My Lords, this Amendment, which I will ask your Lordships to agree to, is really very little more than a drafting Amendment. It is an Amendment which was moved by the noble Viscount, Lord Samuel, in your Lordships' House, who said when he moved it that it really was a very small point. When it was moved in another place it was thought that it might be accepted. I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment.

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


My Lords, I am very glad that this Amendment, which I moved here, has now been accepted in another place, and perhaps I may be permitted to express a slight feeling of regret that it was not accepted in your Lordships' House.

On Question, Motion agreed to.
