HC Deb 16 June 1927 vol 207 cc1360-2

I beg to move, in Page 8, line 27, after the word "religion," to insert the words "recreation ground."

There is a great demand now being made for money to spend in acquiring recreation grounds. We think that to include the words "recreation ground "in the Clause is simply to put it in its proper place, though in that latter category the English have never created, but have followed Scotland. I suggest the Minister of Agriculture might see his way to accept this very modest Amendment.


I accept this Amendment. Like other hon. Members, I am interested in playing grounds, and the Amendment simply offers the same facilities for playing grounds.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 11 (Dedication for streets, open, spaces, etc.) 12 (Power to exchange houses in Royal Parks, etc., for other houses),and 13 (Power for Com- missioners of Crown Lands to enter into contracts), ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Motion made, and Question, "That the Chairman do report Progress, and ask leave to sit again," put, and agreed to.—(Mr. Guinness.)

Committee report Progress; to sit again upon Monday next (20th June).

The remaining Government Orders were read and postponed.
