HC Deb 01 November 1909 vol 12 cc1624-5

Lords Amendment: Leave out Subsection (15). Application with the necessary modifications and adaptations of statutory enactments.

Mr. BURNS moved to disagree with the Lords Amendment.

The Local Government Board are advised that this power is very useful. There are precedents for enabling Acts to be applied, notably the Unemployed Workmen Act, and the Territorial and Reserve Forces Act. We consider that we should have similar powers.
