HC Deb 26 July 1935 vol 304 c2218

Lords Amendment: In page 62, line 38, at the end, insert: (2) Subsection (i) of section eighteen of the Act of 1925 shall have effect as if the words 'habitually used as a sleeping place' had been omitted.

1.6 p.m.


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

A promise was given that, in respect of the closing of underground rooms, this Bill should make of general application the powers now enjoyed by the Kensington Borough Council, who have the fullest powers to close any underground room, whether used for sleeping purposes or not. This Amendment carries out that promise.

Subsequent Lords Amendments to page 64, line 19, agreed to.
