Eleventh Schedule

Volume 466: debated on Tuesday 28 June 1949

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

I beg to move, in page 71, line 17, column 3, to leave out from "behalf" to the end of line 20.

Perhaps I may also refer to the two following Amendments on the Paper. The Committee will remember that on Clause 12 I moved an Amendment which was to remedy the fact that on further examination we found that subsection (3) was out of Order. That was because, as far as moneylenders and refreshment house keepers were concerned, as we were making a change from the fixed date system of licensing to the system of taking out a licence for the full year, it was found that this might have imposed a new charge in the case of an applicant who died during the course of the first year. That had not been provided for in one of the Budget resolutions, and the subsection was technically out of Order. These changes to the Schedule are consequential on that Amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendments made: In line 40, column 3, leave out from "one," to end of line 43.

In line 46, column 3, leave out from "them," to end of line 48.

I beg to move, in page 77, line 58, at the end, to insert:

6 Edw. 7. c. 20. The Revenue Act, 1906. Section nine.
The object of this Amendment is simply to remedy a small oversight in drafting the repeal section of the Bill. Section 9 of the Revenue Act substitutes a uniform duty of 10s. for the ad valorem duties previously chargeable. The duties under these headings are now abolished by Clause 31 (1) of this Bill and paragraph 6 of the Eighth Schedule.

Amendment agreed to.

Schedule, as amended, agreed to.

Bill, as amended, to be reported.

Bill reported, with Amendments; as amended, to be considered upon Monday next, and to be printed. [Bill 157.]
