HL Deb 10 February 1972 vol 327 c1269

My Lords, I beg leave to introduce a Bill to prevent non-British subjects being prohibited from becoming or practising as solicitors; to amend the Solicitors Acts 1957 to 1965; to make further provision as to the Council of The Law Society, the Compensation Fund maintained under the Solicitors Act 1957, the taxation of solicitors' bills, the administration of oaths and taking of affidavits and the termination of a solicitor's retainer; and for connected purposes. I beg to move that the Bill be now read a first time.

Moved, that the Bill be now read 1a.—(Lord Tangley.)

On Question, Bill read 1a, and to be printed.
