I beg to move, in page 3, line 35, to leave out the wordsnoxious smoke and where such by-laws are in force the emission of noxious smokeand to insert instead thereof the wordssmoke of such colour, density, or content as may be prescribed by the by-laws, and where such by-laws are in force the emission of smoke of the character so prescribed.This Amendment is intended to meet a point made in Committee against the use of the word "noxious" in this connection. The form which is now proposed avoids the use of the word and I hope will be satisfactory.
§ Mr. H. WILLIAMS
I desire to thank the Minister for moving this Amendment. The word "noxious" appeared elsewhere in the Bill with a meaning entirely different from that which it would bear in this Clause, and many of us felt that it would be better if the word were omitted from this Clause.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Further Amendment made: In page 4, Line 1, leave out Sub-section (2).— [Mr. Chamberlain.]
