Alert me about debates like this

Lieut.-Colonel HENDERSON:

I beg to move, in page 3, line 14, to leave out the words "caused by," and to insert instead thereof the words, "resulting from."

This is also a drafting Amendment. In all other parts of the Bill we have used the words "resulting from," and they appear a few lines previously in the same Clause. The mistake occurs because in an Amendment accepted by me the mover used these different words. It is desirable, from the point of view of the reading of the Act, that you should have the same words used throughout to express the same thing.

Amendment agreed to.
