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

The amendment was introduced in the House of Lords to correct three technical errors in clause 15 (2). As it stood, clause 15 (2) provided power for money to be paid from the national insurance fund to the Consolidated Fund to pay for expenses incurred in the administration of clauses 2, 6, 7, 8, 10, and 14. Checking revealed that the clause was defective, as it included two clauses that should have been omitted and excluded one clause that should have been included.
