Clause 3—(Short Title And Construction)

Volume 154: debated on Tuesday 30 May 1922

The text on this page has been created from Hansard archive content, it may contain typographical errors.

This Act may be cited as the Lunacy Act, 1922, and shall be construed as one with the Lunacy Acts, 1890 to 1911, and those Acts and this Act may be cited together as the Lunacy Acts, 1890 to 1922.

I beg to move, at the end of the Clause, to insert a new Sub-section:

"(2) This Act shall not apply to Scotland or Ireland."
An hon. Member was good enough to point out to me that I had not put that in the Bill, and it would be more satisfactory to make explicit what was intended to be in the Bill.

Amendment agreed to.

Bill read the Third time, and passed, with Amendments.
