Clause 2, page 2, line 26, at end, insert:

("Provided that, if that time expired or that date fell on or after the twenty-first day of February nineteen 'hundred and forty, such an application may be made within three months from the passing of this Act.")

My Lords, this was a Private Member's Amendment, which was accepted by His Majesty's Government in another place. The Amendment gives operative effect to the Bill as from the date on which it was passed in your Lordships' House. Parties concerned had reasonable hopes that the provisions of this Bill would be available in respect of certain powers which were due to lapse at the end of March, but owing to pressure of Parliamentary time in another place the Bill was not passed there until the 9th of this month. Hence this Amendment was put clown, and His Majesty's Government thought it right to accept it. I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in the Amendment.

Moved, That this House cloth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—( Lord Templemore.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
