HC Deb 23 November 1925 vol 188 c1114

I beg to move, in page 11, line 38, after the word "union," to insert the words "or the whole of any rating area in the county."

If the House will look at Sub-section (2) they will see that it is designed to free the rating authority from keeping separate accounts for each one of the separate parishes. The words I am moving to put in provide that a county council, or a board of guardians, shall not, so far as regards income, which belongs to, or expenditure which is chargeable on, the whole of the county or union, or the whole of any rating area in the county, keep separate accounts for parishes. It is done to simplify book-keeping and prevent unnecessary accounts.

Amendment agreed to.

Ordered, "That further consideration of the Bill, as amended, be now adjourned." — [Mr. Chamberlain.]

Bill, as amended (in the Standing Committee), to be further considered To-morrow.

The remaining Government Orders were rend, and postponed.

It being after half-past Eleven of the Clock upon, Monday evening, Mr. DEPUTY-SPEAKER adjourned the House, without Question put, pursuant to the Standing Order.

Adjourned at Fourteen Minutes before One o'clock.
