Alert me about debates like this

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

I think it unnecessary to go at great length into this Lords Amendment. Its effect is to exempt the application of Clause 2(4) to the dealer who has no store and who is not an exempted itinerant collector, and to require him instead to enter the required particulars in his book as soon as practicable.

Question put and agreed to.

Lords Amendment: In page 6, line 33, after the words last inserted insert: (6) Where a scrap metal dealer occupies a place as a scrap metal store, but for the time being no order under subsection (1) of this section is in force exempting him from the requirements of the last preceding section, and any scrap metal is, for the purposes of his business as a scrap metal dealer, received otherwise than at a place so occupied by him and is disposed of in the course of that business without its being received at such a place, then—

  1. (a) the obligation imposed by subsection (1) of the last preceding section to enter particulars in a book or books shall extend to the entry, as soon as is practicable, of the like particulars with respect to that scrap metal as would be required by subsections (2) and (3) of the last preceding section if they were modified so that—
    1. (i) any reference therein to the receipt of scrap metal at a place were construed as a reference to the receipt of scrap metal for the purposes of that business; and
    2. (ii) any reference therein to the processing of scrap metal at a place or to the despatch of scrap metal from a place, were construed as a reference to the disposal of scrap metal in the course of that business;
  2. (b) if the dealer occupies more than one place as a scrap metal store, the particulars required by virtue of the preceding paragraph shall be entered in the book or books kept by him under the last preceding section at such of the places so occupied by him as is the nearer, or, as the case may be, the nearest, to the place at which the scrap metal is received for the purposes aforesaid; and
  3. (c) subsection (4) of the last preceding section shall not have effect in relation to the particulars so required."

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

The effect is to extend the provisions of Clause 2, subject to the modifications set out in the Lords Amendment, to cases where the dealer who has a store receives scrap metal for the purposes of his business otherwise than at the store. I think the Lords Amendments sets out the purposes for which it is made.

Question put and agreed to.
