§ Mr. PROTHERO
I beg to move, to leave out the words "at any market or show or in any public place," and to insert instead thereof the word "aforesaid."

§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Further Amendments made:
§ Leave out the words "any person who refuses to allow any person so authorised," and insert instead thereof the words 1131 "if any person refuses to allow any person who is so authorised and who, if so required, produces his authority."
§ After the word "section" ["under this Section shall be liable"], insert the words "that person."—[Mr. Prothero.]
