Lords Amendment: In page 3, line 20, leave out from the first

"the" to end of line 23 and insert:

"word 'twopence' there shall be substituted the word 'fourpence'."

10.49 p.m.

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

This Amendment implements a promise which I gave when the Bill was before the Committee, that shorthand reports of courts-martial should not cost more than a certain amount. On that occasion, in response to the plea of my hon. Friend the Member for Nelson and Colne (Mr. S. Silverman) that there should be a maximum put to the cost of the supply of these shorthand notes, I promised that the maximum should be 4d.

Question put, and agreed to.
