§ The noble Lord said: My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 1 and 2. These Amendments are simple. They deal with a point raised by the noble Lord, Lord Balerno, on Second Reading in your Lordships' House. I beg to move.
§ Moved, that this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendments.—(Lord Hughes.)
§ LORD BALERNO
My Lords, I should like to express my gratitude for these Amendments being put into the Bill. Unfortunately this clarification of the law may mean rather less business for the Bar in Scotland.
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
