HC Deb 23 November 1925 vol 188 c1097

I beg to move, on page 8, line 1, to leave out the words "from time to time."

This and the three Amendments which follow are little more than drafting Amendments. They are intended to make its intention more clear but do not in any way alter its effect.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendments made: In page 8, line 2, leave out the word "make" and insert instead thereof the words "by resolution direct that".

In line 3, after the word "centum," insert the words "shall be made."

In lines 5 and 6, leave out the words "same within such time after demand of the rate," and insert instead thereof the words "net amount due before such date."—[Mr. Chamberlain.]


I beg to move, in page 8, line 7, to leave out from the word "that," to the end of the Clause, and to insert instead thereof the words the said allowance—

  1. (a) shall not be made where the person paying the rate is an owner who, under the provisions of this Part of this Act relating to the rating of and the payment and collection of rates by owners, is rated instead of the occupier in respect of the hereditament or has entered into an agreement with the rating authority to pay or collect the rates payable in respect thereof; and
  2. (b) shall be made at the same rate to all persons entitled thereto.
(2) The rating authority may at any time revoke or vary a resolution under this Section. (3) While any resolution under this Section is in force, there shall be included in every demand note on which the general rate is levided a statement of the effect of the resolution. This Amendment is to meet a point raised in Committee. The proposal, as it appears on the Paper, is, I think, perfectly clear.

Amendment agreed to.
