HC Deb 26 July 1935 vol 304 cc2191-2

Lords Amendment: In page 13, line 34, at the beginning, insert: (1) The provisions of section forty-one of the Act of 1925 (which relates to costs incurred in connection with certain orders) shall have effect in relation to a re-development plan and to a new plan and to the Minister's approval of any such plan and in relation to a compulsory purchase order made under the last foregoing section, as they have effect, in relation to the orders mentioned in the said section.


This Amendment raises a question of Privilege.


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

Section 41 of the Act of 1925, enables the Minister to award costs to objectors who have appeared at public local inquiries and whose objections have later been sustained by the decision of the Minister on the Order. It is obviously desirable that the Minister should have similar powers to award costs in the case of a person who successfully objects against a local authority's proposal in regard to re-development. This Amendment gives that power.


A special entry will be made in the Journals of the House.

Subsequent Lords Amendments to page 21, line 30, agreed to.
