HC Deb 12 December 1919 vol 122 c1807

(1) A local authority may, with the consent of the Minister, borrow any sums which they have power to borrow for the purpose of the Housing Acts 1890 to 1919, by the issue of bonds (in this Act referred to as "local bonds") in accordance with the provisions of this Act.


I beg to move, in Subsection (1), after the word "authority" ["a local authority may"], to insert the words including a county council."

This is in order to make it clear that a county council is a local authority for the purposes of this Bill. It may be that a county council is not the housing authority under the Housing Acts except for special purposes, and it is necessary to insert these words here.

Amendment agreed to.
