4 After Clause 5, insert the following new clause:
Amendment of Judicial Factors Act 1849.
'.In the Judicial Factors Act 1849—
My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 4. Amendment No. 4 introduces another new clause. The purpose is to increase the amount of cash which a judicial factor is entitled to retain in his hands for day-to-day expenses, and to lengthen the period within which a factor may lodge objections to any requisition or order made upon him by the accountant of court. The clause was introduced during the Commons Committee stage. It replaced a clause which had been tabled by the Opposition, in which the Government made certain drafting changes. Again, this seems a worthwhile improvement on the existing law on the subject. My Lords, I beg to move.
Moved, That the House doth agree with the Commons in the said amendment.—( Lord Mackay of Clashfern.)
On Question, Motion agreed to.
