Lords Amendment: In page 18, line 30, leave out from beginning to "shall," in line 33 and insert:

"(2) The power to make orders conferred on the Postmaster-General by section eight of this Act and any power conferred on him by any of the provisions of this Act to make regulations shall be exercisable by statutory instrument, and any statutory instrument made in the exercise of any of the said powers."

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

It is not in accordance with Parliamentary practice to require Orders in Council extending the provisions of Acts of Parliament to the Isle of Man or to the Channel Islands to be laid before Parliament. The Amendment modifies the Bill accordingly.

Question put, and agreed to.
