Order read for consideration, as amended (in the Standing Committee).

10.43 p.m.

I beg to move,

That the Bill be re-committed to a Committee of the whole House, in respect of the Amendments to Clause 3, page 4, line 10; Clause 5, page 6, lines 6 and 33; Clause 11, page 11, lines 15 and 35; and new Schedule (Special saving for certain slaughterhouses licensed or registered before 1st October 1939), standing on the Notice Paper in the name of Major G. Lloyd George.
The reason why I am asking the House to agree to re-committal is because I undertook to consider further two of the points raised when the Bill was in Standing Committee dealing with issues affecting compensation. Since the Committee stage, a third point has also come to light, and I will, with permission, explain it in detail when we come to the Amendments. None of the Amendments enlarges the field of compensation, nor do they increase the amount of compensation.

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill immediately considered in Committee.

[Sir RHYS HOPKIN MORRIS in the Chair]
