§ Inland Revenue licence for motor-car drivers.
§ "The definition of 'male servant' in subsection (3) of Section nineteen of the 899 Revenue Act, 1869, as amended by Section five of the Customs and Inland Revenue Act, 1876, and Section ten of the Finance Act, 1921, shall be constructed as if a person employed to drive a motor car were included in that definition.")
My Lords, this is a reproduction of a clause which was in the Motor Car Act, 1903, and has been in existence since then. At that time this was a new kind of male servant that did not come within the description contemplated by the old Act, and so it was inserted in the Act of 1903. Of course, its proper place, no doubt, is a Finance Bill. It is put in here because it is desired to repeal in the Schedules the whole of the 1903 Act and to re-enact its provisions. I think your Lordships will regard it as more convenient. I beg to move.
§ Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(Earl Russell.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
