I beg to move, in page 48, line 7, to leave out from "Act," to "shall," in line 12.

Sub-section (3) of Clause 67 provides that certain Orders of the Board of Trade made under this Act shall be laid on the Table for the approval of Parliament, but it limits the Orders which have to be laid on the Table. It limits them to three types of Orders, namely: Orders dealing with a rate of premium, orders dealing with the exemption of persons from the provisions of Part II of the Act relating to compulsory insurance, and exemptions of certain goods. This Amendment is devised to ensure that all Orders made by the Board of Trade under this Act shall be laid on the Table. I see no reason why it should be limited to the particular classes indicated.

Major Lloyd George:

We accept this Amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
