§ Sub-section (3).—Where an owner or other person has failed to execute any work which he has been required to execute under the bye-laws, the local authority or sanitary authority, as the case may be, may, after giving to him not less than fourteen days' notice in writing, themselves execute the works and recover the costs and expenses, and for that purpose the provisions of Sub-section (3) of the last foregoing Section, with respect to the execution of works and the recovery of expenses by local authorities, shall apply as if the owner or other person were the landlord and with such other adaptations as may be necessary.1515
§ Lords Amendment: After the word "authorities" ["local authorities"] insert "and the provisions of Sub-section (6) of the last foregoing Section with respect to an appeal against any notice requiring the execution of works and any demand for the recovery of expenses and against any order made with respect to those expenses under this Section."
§ Lord ROBERT CECIL
I do not want to go back upon the discussion we have had in regard to the county court, but is there any reason why there should not be an appeal to the Local Government Board under Section 16? The effect of this Amendment would be to give an appeal under Section 16 to the Local Government Board. Having refused the appeal to the county court, the Government will not, I trust, refuse an appeal to the Local Government Board.
§ Mr. BURNS
The Amendment gives an appeal not on a question of altering regulations, but from an Order requiring the execution of works. There is no possible ground for an appeal in such circumstances. There is no such appeal now the Clause does not alter the duties imposed by the law. It merely extends the class of persons who may be required to perform the duty.
