HC Deb 28 July 1927 vol 209 c1623

Lords Amendment:

In page 2, line 29, leave out the word "December" and insert "October."


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

This is a very small Amendment. Compulsory powers are taken under the Lands Clauses Act, and it is provided that those powers shall be used within three years after the passing of the Bill. The Bill provided that the power to purchase lands compulsorily should cease on the 31st December, 1930. It is now proposed that, instead of December, the month should be October, which makes a difference of two months.
