HC Deb 22 March 1929 vol 226 c2025

Lords Amendment: In page 81, line 32, after the word "may," insert provide for that expenditure being taken in appropriate cases to be the amount of the payments made in any year and may


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

This Amendment is being proposed in response to a request made by certain local authorities in order to remove any possible doubt that local authorities who have kept their accounts on a receipts and payment basis will not be required, for the purpose of the calculation of grant, to reconstruct them on an income and expenditure basis. The actual account kept will be used for the purpose of calculations and estimates to be made under the Bill.

Question put, and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendments, to page 84, line 34, agreed to.
