§ LORD MORRISON
My Lords, Clause 37, subsection (1) as it is drafted brings within the scope of the child life protection provisions total or partial orphans who are being maintained by a person other than a parent, guardian or relative, to whom a guardian s allowance or family allowance is payable by reason of the child being so maintained. As subsection (1) is drafted the child life protection provisions apply as from the date on which the person's application for a guardian's or family allowance is granted. A person may be in receipt of a family allowance by reason of maintaining a child who is not his own and who is not a total or partial orphan. In that case the child life protection provisions would not necessarily apply, but they would apply if the child became a total or partial orphan while being cared for in this way. The Amendment provides for 105 this contingency. I beg to move that this House do agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.
§ Moved, that this House do agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(Lord Morrison.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
