Amendment agreed to.

I beg to move, in page 36, line 34, column 2, at end, to add:

"or to such persons as are mentioned in paragraph (b) of subsection (2) of the section."
This Amendment explains itself. It gives private persons in Scotland as in England the right to borrow for housing purposes from the Public Works Loans Commissioners.

Amendment agreed to.
