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

Perhaps I might draw attention at the same time to the two following Lords Amendments:

In line 4, after "contracts," insert: and provide for the enforcement against them of certain workmen's compensation liabilities. In line 9, after "thirty-seven," insert: and to repeal the provisions of that Act imposing restrictions on the disposal of government stock issued for compensation to companies. They are all alterations in the title consequential on the two new Clauses to which we shall come later.
