Considered in Committee of the whole House under Standing Order No. 84 (Money Committees).—[ Queen's Recommendation signified.]

[Colonel Sir CHARLES MACANDREW in the Chair]


That, for the purposes of any Act of the present Session to authorise the payment out of moneys provided by Parliament of contributions for relief of occupiers of agricultural land in respect of expenditure on fertilisers, it is expedient to authorise the payment out of moneys provided by Parliament—
  • (a) of contributions for relieving occupiers of agricultural land of a part of the expenditure which they would otherwise have incurred in respect of fertilisers acquired before or after the passing of the said Act, being contributions made in accordance with a scheme securing so far as practicable that the making of contributions in accordance with the scheme in respect of fertilisers of any kind will not relieve occupiers who acquire fertilisers of that kind of more than one-half of the expenditure which they would have incurred in respect thereof if there had been no provision for the making of those contributions; and
  • (b) of any expenses of administration incurred by a Minister for the purposes of the said Act of the present Session, or of any scheme made under that Act.—[Sir T. Dugdale.]
  • Resolution to be reported Tomorrow.
