§ Order of the Day for the Report of the Amendments read.
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY UNDERSECRETARY OF STATE FOR DOMINION AFFAIRS (THE DUKE OF DEVONSHIRE)
My Lords, in moving that this Report he now received, I must apologise to the House for having inadvertently, by a slip of the tongue yesterday, perhaps slightly misled the House. I was referring to an imaginary case of a man who might be in receipt of a disability pension, and I said that the Board would be compelled to disregard not only that pension but also the 10s. statutory minimum old age pension which he would receive. There I was mistaken, and I beg leave to correct that mistake and to apologise to the House.
§ Moved, That the Report be now received.—(The Duke of Devonshire.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to; Amendments reported accordingly.
§ Then, Standing Order No. XXXIX having been suspended, Bill read 3ª, with the Amendments, and passed, and returned to the Commons.
