I beg to move, in page 10, line 31, to leave out, "charge or lien for securing money or money's worth," and to insert "mortgage or floating charge."

This is really a clarifying Amendment. It is true that it occurred to us as being particularly necessary for clarifying purposes in the light of the fact that rent-charges were to be brought in, but the intention has always been that these words should cover only mortgage or floating charges. There might, however, be doubts in people's minds, and we desire to make it quite clear.
