HC Deb 15 June 1933 vol 279 cc339-40

The following Amendment stood upon the Order Paper:

In page 4, line 38, at the end, to add the words:

"and the following Sub-section shall be added after Sub-section (3): (4) The Secretary for Scotland shall as soon as possible cause a copy of every such report to be sent to the petitioners and to any persons who have in the prescribed manner and within the prescribed time objected to the proposed Order."—[Mr. Milne.]

4.9 p.m.


This Amendment is on all fours with the one to which I have just spoken. Other bodies beside Government Departments furnish these reports. County councils and town councils, if so advised, may send reports to the Secretary of State, and the Amendment is designed to secure that these reports also should be made available. But in view of the undertaking received from the Solicitor-General for Scotland, I do not propose to move this Amendment.

Clauses 6 (Amendment of s. 16 of principal Act) and 7 (Short title), ordered to stand part of the Bill.
