§ Where any company or authority authorised to supply water, light, heat, or power, has, on the requisition or at the request of any Government Department for purposes connected with the present War, supplied water, light, heat, or power to any factory, building, camp, or other premises and such supply is not authorised by law, whether by reason of the premises not being within the area of supply of the company or authority or otherwise, or is in contravention of any agreement made by the company or authority, the company or authority after the termination of the War, shall, if and so long as required by any Government Department to do so, continue the supply, but not beyond the expiration of twelve months after such termination unless the consent of the Commission is obtained, and before giving such consent the Commission shall give to the company or authority in whose area of supply the premises are situated, and any other person who appears to them to be interested in the continuance or discontinuance of such supply, an opportunity of being heard, and, if the premises are not within the area of supply of the company or authority, the company or authority shall have the like power with respect to the supply of water, light, heat, or power to the premises as if the premises were within its area of supply, and as if any roads or bridges along, across, over, on or under which any pipes or lines or other works have been laid for the purpose of supplying the premises were roads which the company or authority were authorised to break up for the purpose of their undertaking: Provided that 1216 no supply of water shall be given or shall continue to be given under this Section by any company or authority if and so long as such supply would prejudice the supply within the area of supply of such company or authority.
§ Mr. BOYTON
I beg to move, after the word "water" ["Provided that no supply of water shall be given"], to insert the words "light, heat, or power."
These words occur in the first part of the Section. On the Committee stage an Amendment was moved, and by an oversight the words "light, heat, or power" were not added to the word "water." I believe the Solicitor-General is ready to accept this Amendment, and I beg to move it.
§ Amendment agreed to.
