HC Deb 22 March 1929 vol 226 c2026

Lords Amendment: In page 87, line 28, after the word "therefor" insert within fifteen years from the appointed day either.


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

In regard to this Amendment, and the one following—in page 87, at the end of line 32, insert "or by such other means as may be agreed between the Minister and the council"—it has been represented to us by certain local authorities that they would desire to pay the debt, if they are in a position to do so, in a shorter period than the fifteen years mentioned in this Clause. It is to enable them to do so that this Amendment is being incorporated.

Question put, and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendments, to page 93, line 14, agreed to.
