Mr George Mathers: I beg to move, as an Amendment to the proposed Clause, in subsection (3, a) to leave out "outstanding."

Members in thanking the Chancellor of the Exchequer for the wider terms which are used in...

That has been the general practice, but during the time I have been Chairman this has been by no means an absolute rule.

Clause 10. — (PowERS OF WATER BAILIFFS.) (24 Jan 1951)
