§ The LORD CHANCELLOR
My Lords, with the leave of the House, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 1 to 10 en bloc. These are all minor Government drafting Amendments which clarify the Bill and make no substantive changes in it. Most of them have been suggested by the Finance Houses Association, and I am most grateful to them for their help. I think it would be for the convenience of the House, if the House agrees, for the Amendments to be moved en bloc, but if an explanation is sought about any one of them, or indeed each of them, I shall be happy to endeavour to give the appropriate explanation. 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.
