HC Deb 04 August 1925 vol 187 c1328

Lords Amendment:

In page 9, line 29, at the end, insert the following new Sub-section: (2) The powers conferred on the local authority by thi6 section shall, as respects any main road maintained by a county council, be exercisable by the county council instead of by the local authority, and any expenses incurred by a county council under this section shall be defrayed as expenses for general county purposes.


This is a privileged Amendment, as it may involve a charge on the rates. Does the hon. Member move to agree with it?


Yes, Sir. I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

Subsequent Lords Amendments, to page 38, line28, agreed to.
