HC Deb 22 March 1929 vol 226 cc2033-4

Lords Amendment: In page 122, leave out from the first word "the," in line 25, to the end of line 35, and insert:

"following assumptions:

  1. (i) that elsewhere than in the County of London, Section nine of the Rating and Valuation Act, 1925, and not paragraph ten of the Seventh Schedule to that Act, had been in operation with respect to precepts issued by county councils; and
  2. (ii) that the expenditure on the transferred services had been expenditure by a county council or a county borough council and, in the case of a county, had been expenditure for general county purposes; and
  3. (iii) that in the case of the County of London the London (Equalisation of Rates) Act, 1894, had not been in force in the standard year."


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

Although this Amendment is rather long, it is really only a drafting Amendment. The new words are elsewhere than in the County of London. These words are put in because the Rating and Valuation Act, 1925, does not apply to London.

Question put, and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendments, to page 129, line 15, agreed to.
