The purpose of Clause 5 is to continue for one year or more the additional duties imposed by Section 11 of the Finance Act, 1915. The hon. Member moves that they should be continued till 1st August, 1922. The result of that Amendment would be simply to negative the Clause, and if the hon. Member succeeds in negativing the Clause on a Division, the result would be exactly the same as carrying the Amendment.
