§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR
My Lords, these two Amendments perhaps might be taken together. They really are required because, oddly enough, the Bill, as drawn, was not quite up to date in its references. Statutes are passed from time to time and in war-time often so frequently that it is difficult always to be quite sure that we have mentioned the latest Statute of the 635 series. In the case of the War Damage Act the reference was to Section nine of the War Damage Act, 1941. There has been a War Damage Act of 1943 and therefore the proper reference is to Section twelve of the War Damage Act, 1943. A similar thing occurs in reference to the final Amendment. This should be Courts (Emergency Powers) Act, 1943. I beg to move that the House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendments.
§ Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendments.—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
