Clause I7—(Financial Provisions)

Volume 416: debated on Thursday 12 April 1945

I beg to move, in page 12, line 45, leave out "duties," and insert "functions."

I notice that several hon. and learned Gentlemen are laughing. I suppose they feel that I have spotted one of those points out of which considerable legal fortunes have been made in the past. This is a drafting Amendment necessary in order to keep the language of the Subsection uniform. Having regard to the use of the word ''functions'' in line 6 of Subsection (2), by putting the same word in both places we ensure that there shall be no doubt about the meaning.

Question put, and agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
