I beg to move, in page 102, line 41, at the end, to add:

"(3) Any order by the Minister giving effect to the transfer to the Commission or any other body of the whole or part of a canal carrier undertaking, or an undertaking providing port facilities, with respect to which a declaration has been made under the provisions of this Act by the Transport Tribunal, shall, not withstanding any power of the Minister to except provisions of this Act from application to such a transfer, include such provision as appears to him appropriate in relation to the matters specified in Subsection (1) of this section."
The purpose of this Amendment is to permit the Commission to pay compensation to any officers who may lose their employment, or whose positions may become worsened as a result of the transfer of canal and port undertakings and facilities. It extends to any officers and servants of these bodies the same compensation rights as apply to the other transport undertakings.

Amendment agreed to.

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