The following Amendment stood on the Order Paper in the name of Mr. LAWSON:

In page 1, line 8, leave out the word "including" and insert instead thereof the words "on attaining the age of fifty five and for".

I am afraid that this Amendment involves an increased charge on the rates, and cannot be moved at this stage.

Lieut.-Colonel HENDERSON:

I beg to move, in page 1, lines 8 and 9, to leave out the words "including chief officers, fire-masters, superintendents, and second officers," and to insert instead thereof the words, "of all ranks."

This is only a drafting Amendment, to simplify the reading of the Clause.

Amendment agreed to.
