10 Clause 24, page 16, line 28, after "than" insert—
(a) a warrant for the arrest of property; or
§ 4.30 p.m.
§ The Lord Chancellor
My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 10. I will speak also, if I may, to Amendments Nos. 11 and 56. Amendment No. 10 makes clear that the power to grant interim relief conferred on English and Northern Ireland courts by Clause 24 does not include the arrest of a ship or other property. Instead, Amendment No. 11 makes provision whereby property arrested in proceedings here may be retained in cases where the proceedings are referred to arbitration or are pursued abroad, as security for the satisfaction of the arbitration award or foreign judgment. The new clause also covers cases where in the proceedings in this country security was given to avoid the arrest of property. Amendment No. 56 introduces a transitional provision.
§ Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said amendment—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
