§ Clause 30, page 21, line 37, at end insert ("and if subsection (2) were omitted")
§ Schedule 1, page 33, column 2, leave out lines 2 to 6 and insert—
("Section 1 shall have effect with the substitution, in subsection (1), for the words 'order the payment into Court' (in both places where they occur), of the words 'order the payment into the Supreme Court and with the substitution, for subsection (3), of the following subsection:—
'(3) In the application of the principal Act and of this Act to Scotland, references to payment into the Supreme Court shall be construed as references to consignation in the Court of Session'.")
§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR
My Lords, these two Amendments relate to Northern Ireland and to Scotland. Amendment No. 17 is consequential on 244 the addition of the new subsection (2) to Clause 19. Since there is at present no power to control widows' damages in Northern Ireland, the Northern Irish Parliament would not need to include in any legislation corresponding to Clause 19 a provision analogous to the new subsection (2).
So far as Amendment No. 18 is concerned, this states thatIn the application of the principal Act and of this Act to Scotland, references to payment into the Supreme Court shall be construed as references to consignation in the Court of Session.It is a question of adaptability of Scottish provisions. I beg to move.
§ Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendments.—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
