§ Queen's Recommendation having been signified—3.38 pm
§ The Under-Secretary of State for Employment (Mr. Peter Morrison)
I beg to move,That, for the purposes of any Act of the present Session to amend the Industrial Training Act 1964 it is expedient to authorise the payment out of moneys provided by Parliament of any expenditure incurred by the Secretary of State—(a) in paying pensions, superannuation allowances or gratuities to or in respect of the former chairmen of industrial training boards wound up by orders made under section 9(1)(b) of that Act; and(b) in making payments to the trustees of the Industrial Training Boards' Combined Pension Fund for the purpose of meeting the whole or part of any shortfall in the assets of the Fund referable to the pensions, superannuation allowances and gratuities payable in respect of the former officers and servants of industrial training boards which are wound up under that section.The money resolution is required in order to authorise amendment No. 14, which will be moved later. I think it will be convenient to the House if we discuss the substance of the matter when we discuss amendment No. 14.
§ Question put and agreed to.
