HC Deb 22 March 1929 vol 226 cc2026-7

Lords Amendment: In page 94, leave out from the word "upon" in line 25 to the word "or" in line 26.


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

This arises out of an undertaking given in the House that the Government would consider inserting a provision enabling the district council and county council to agree that in the event of a quarry, plant, etc., being taken over by the county council, some or all of the liabilities contracted in respect of it should pass to the county council, and provision is made accordingly to allow such an arrangement to be made. If, however, any part of the liability is transferred to the county council, it would not be right that this council should pay the district council the full value of the property, and we are proposing to omit the words "as representing the value of the property so transferred at the time of the transfer."

Question put, and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendments, to page 99, line 16, agreed to.
