HC Deb 22 March 1929 vol 226 c2010

Lords Amendment: In page 14, leave out from the word "the," in line 24, to the word "reference" in line 28.


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

This Amendment, and the next Amendment, in page 14, line 34, at the end, to insert: (c) the administrative scheme may make provision for the appointment—

  1. (i) of sub-committees of the public assistance committee (in this Section referred to as 'local committees') consisting wholly or partly of members of that committee; and
  2. (ii) of sub-committees of local committees, consisting wholly or partly of members of the local committees;
for the functions of such local committees and for the discharge by the sub-committees thereof of any of the functions which, under the foregoing provisions of this Part of this Act, are to be discharged by guardians committees or sub-committees thereof"— must be taken together. They deal with the administrative arrangements in London only. The Amendment has been agreed upon with representatives of the London County Council and it is designed to enable the work to be carried without overloading the members of any committee.

Question put, and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendments, to page 19, line 17, agreed to.
