HC Deb 02 July 1935 vol 303 c1805

9.4 p.m.


I beg to move, in page 45, line 24, after "purposes," to insert: (which expression includes the erection or placing on land of a hut, tent, caravan, or other temporary or movable form of shelter). This Amendment is little more than a drafting Amendment. It interpolates in Sub-section (1) the provision at present contained in Sub-section (2), and the Amendment is necessary in view of the proposal contained in an Amendment which will be moved on the recommittal of the Bill to ease the restrictions to be imposed on the use of cleared land by giving an aggrieved owner power within a period of three months to require the local authority to purchase the land except where restriction relates to huts, tents and caravans.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 45, line 34, leave out Sub-section (2).—[The Lord Advocate.]
