"(3) No person shall be qualified to be appointed assistant master unless he is either at the time of his appointment an officer of the Master or is a barrister or solicitor of not less than five years' standing. The appointment of the Assistant Master shall be made by the Lord Chancellor."

I beg to move, in Sub-section (3), to leave out the word "either."

This is purely a drafting Amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In Subsection (3), after the word "appointment" ["appointment an officer"], insert the word "either."—[ Sir E. Pollock.]
