I beg to move, in page 19, line 1, at the beginning, to insert: As from the date when section nineteen of this Act comes into force. This is the first of a series of Amendments—others are on Clause 23—designed to make provision for whole-time collecing officers who will cease to be collecting officers under this Clause under which the justices' clerk is to become the collecting officer by virtue of his office. These Amendments are put in to safeguard the position of those people and to define their relationship with the justices" clerk.
