§ (1) In the application of this Act to Scotland references to the Scottish Board of Health shall be substituted for references to the Minister of Health.830
§ Mr. MUNRO
I beg to move, at the end of Sub-section (1), to insert the words:(b) for the reference to The Housing, Town Planning, &c., Act, 1919, there shall be substituted a reference to The Housing, Town Planning, &c. (Scotland), Act, 1919;(c) for the reference to Section sixty-nine of The Local Government Act, 1888. there shall be substituted a reference to Section sixty-seven of The Local Government (Scotland), Act, 1889;(d) for the reference to the Public Health Acts, 1875 to 1908, there shall be substituted a reference to the Public Health (Scotland) Acts, 1897 and 1907;(e) for reference to Section eighteen and Sections eighty-four to ninety of The Lands Clauses Consolidation Act, 1845, there shall be substituted references to Section seventeen and Sections eighty-three to eighty-eight, respectively, of The Lands Clauses Consolidation (Scotland) Act, 1845;(f) in Section three of this Act the expression "local authority" means a county council or a town council.These are really drafting Amendments to the Scottish Clause. They follow the terminology of that country, and are purely interpretative.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Mr. MUNRO
I beg to move, "That the Bill be re-committed to a Committee of the whole House in respect of a new Clause ('Rates of Wages and conditions of Labour on works of public utility')."
I make this Motion for the purpose of enabling the hon. Member for Nottingham West (Mr. Hayday) to move a new Clause of which he has given me notice, a Clause which, I understand, inasmuch as notice has not been given of it, cannot be taken upon the Report stage.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Bill considered in Committee.
