Amendment made:

In page 42, leave out from the word "apportionment," in line 37, to the end of the Sub-section, and insert instead thereof the words: and as if for the words 'the amount of the loss on account of rates and grants of that county' there were substituted the words 'an amount equal to the burgh apportionment for the first fixed grant period increased by the loss or reduced by the gain of the burgh as a whole as ascertained under sub-section (1) of this section.'"—[Major Elliot.]

Question, "That the Clause, as amended, stand part of the Bill," put, and agreed to.
