HC Deb 07 February 1929 vol 224 cc2041-5

Amendment made:

In page 18, leave out from the word "as," in line 41, to end of the Clause, and insert instead thereof the words: the councils concerned may agree appoint—

  1. (a) the town council of any small burgh within the county, or
  2. (b) the district council of a district within the county, or
  3. (c) a joint committee of such a town council and district council (of which joint committee the members of the county council for the burgh and district shall be members)
to act as the agents of the county council to carry out any function (other than a function relating to education or police) vested in the county council and exerciseable within the small burgh or district or small burgh and district, as the case may be, so however that a function relating to any form of medical or surgical treatment shall not be so delegated except with the approval of the Central Department, and subject to the terms of appointment a council or committee so acting as agent may act through a committee or sub-committee thereof. (2) Any council so acting as agent or having representation on any such joint committee may contribute towards the expenses incurred by the council or committee in so acting as agent, and any such contribution by a town council may be defrayed out of such rate leviable by the council and payable by owners and occupiers in equal proportions as the council may determine."—[Sir J. Gilmour.]
