I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

As the Bill left the Commons for the other place the position was that the authority responsible for the issuing of licences for the blind was the Common Council for the City of London. The position now is that the National Assistance Board is responsible and they have instructed the London County Council for the issuing of the licences. This Amendment is to alter the Bill to cover that point.

I take it that the Common Council for the City of London have agreed?
