Alert me about debates like this

Lords Amendment No. 17: In page 24, line 8, leave out "15 of the principal" and insert "5 of this".

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

The Amendment corrects a textual error in the Bill as it previously stood. Section 15 of the principal Act is to be replaced by Clause 5 of the Bill. The Amendment takes account of this, and corrects that small imperfection.

As this is the last Amendment that we have to consider, I think that it would be appropriate to pay tribute, as I am sure the right hon. Gentleman and hon. Gentlemen opposite would want to do, to the work of the other place, which has added to the excellent work done by the Opposition in this House in improving the Bill and making it very much better than it was when we found it.

If I am in order in doing so, I should like to associate myself with that tribute to those who have worked on this Bill, both in the other place and in this House.

Question put and agreed to.
