Lords Amendment: In page 3, line 7, at end, insert:

(2) For the purposes of the said Act of 1932, the expression "instalment" includes (without prejudice to the provisions of subsection (1) of section ten of that Act) any sum credited or to be credited to the hirer OT the purchaser on account of any deposit or premium payable by him, whether that sum is to be or has been paid to the owner or to any other person or is to be or has been discharged by a payment of money or by the transfer or delivery of goods or by any other means.
In this subsection the expression "hirer," "purchaser" and "owner" have the like meanings as in the said Act of 1932.

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

The purpose of the Amendment is merely to bring the position in Scotland into line with the position in England.

Question put, and agreed to.
