HC Deb 26 July 1935 vol 304 c2206

Lords Amendment: In page 55, line 43, at the end, insert: Provided that the foregoing provisions of this sub-section shall not affect the validity of any bye-laws made under the Public Health Act, 1875, or under the Public Health (London) Act, 1891, before the commencement of this Act by virtue of the power conferred by the said Section six, but any such bye-laws shall be deemed to have been made under the said Section six and may be revoked or amended accordingly.

12.31 p.m.


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

This saving is necessary to clarify the position of existing bye-laws which have been made under the Acts cited, and which will continue in force. It is designed to remove any doubt as to the power of a local authority to revoke or amend them.

Subsequent Lords Amendments to page 57, line 4, agreed to.
