As amended, considered.
said he desired on behalf of his noble friend the Member for the Chorley Division of Lancashire to move in Clause 1, before 'manufacture' to insert 'primary.' He did not know whether the right hon. Gentleman the Secretary for Scotland desired to accept it. Apparently an agreement had been come to last night by which some words were to be inserted to protect from the operation of the Bill certain manufactures, in many parts of Scotland, from various whale products. The right hon. Gentleman had said that the Bill only referred to those manufactures of whale products which were primarily and directly from the carcase of the whale, and he seemed to think that that was provided for in the clause as it now stood. He did not think that that was really so; at any rate they on that side of the House did not think so. Amendment proposed—
—(Mr. Bowles.) Question proposed, "That the word `primary' be there inserted in the Bill.""In page 1, line 6, after the word 'the,' to insert the word 'primary.'"
said he proposed to insert the word "primary" in another place, and suggested that it should be in line 7.
asked leave to withdraw the Amendment. Amendment, by leave, withdrawn. Amendment proposed—
—(Mr. Sinclair.) Question, "That the word primary be there inserted," put, and agreed to."In page 1, line 7, after the word 'other' to insert the word 'primary.'"
said that in the discussions which had taken place on Clause 3, Sub-clause 4, it had been suggested that licensed persons should not be in the same position as unlicensed persons, and he proposed therefore to submit certain Amendments of the clause. He moved to leave out the words "holder of a licence or." Amendment proposed—
—(Mr. Sinclair) Question proposed, "That the words proposed to be left out stand part of the Bill.""In page 3, line 30, to leave out the words 'holder of a license or.'"
asked whether the words "by him" ought not also to be omitted?
Yes; the hon Member is quite right. Amendment agreed to.
"In page 3, line 30, to leave out the words 'employed by him.'" —(Mr. Sinclair.)
Question proposed, "That the words proposed to be left out stand part of the Bill."
said he was very glad that the right hon. Gentleman had made this alteration in the Bill, for it was a very distinct improvement. Amendment agreed to. Amendment proposed—
—(Mr. Sinclair.) Question proposed, "That the word 'or' stand part." Question put, and negatived. Bill read the third time, and passed."In page 3, line 32, to leave out the word 'or' and insert the words 'and no holder of a licence or persons employed by him shall pursue, kill, or shoot at any whale."
