HC Deb 09 November 1921 vol 148 cc567-8

(1) Any money borrowed by a local authority before the first day of April, nineteen hundred and twenty-three, if certified by the Minister of Health to have been borrowed for the purpose of any work undertaken by the authority with a view to the provision of employment for unemployed persons, and any money borrowed under the last foregoing Section, shall not, be reckoned as part of the debt of the local authority for the purposes of any enactment limiting the powers of borrowing by that authority.

Lords Amendment:

In Sub-section (1) leave out the words "the last foregoing Section," and insert under the provisions of this Act for the purpose of providing temporarily for current expenses.


I beg to move, as an Amendment to the Lords Amendment, to leave out the word "under."

This is a purely drafting Amendment, but in order to have it drafted correctly I have to move an Amendment to the Lords Amendment.

Amendment to Lords Amendment agreed to.

Lords Amendment, as amended, agreed to.
