Clause 23—(Scope Of Part Ii)

Volume 439: debated on Friday 11 July 1947

I beg to move, in page 14, line 46, to leave out "proceedings in the High Court," and to insert, "an action."

As at present drafted, this Clause limits the scope of the proceedings to which Part II of the Bill applies, and confines it to actions in the High Court. Of course, that is wrong. The intention is that the county court should be included in the scope of the provision, and that is the object of this Amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

I beg to move, in page 15, fine 38, at the end, to add:

(4) Subject to the provisions of any Order in Council made under the provisions hereinafter contained, this part of this Act shall not affect proceedings initiated in any court other than the High Court or a county court.
This is an Amendment to the same effect, in order to remove any doubts.

Amendment agreed to.

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