§ Sir JOSEPH LAMB
I beg to move, in page 6, line 28, to leave out "seven," and to insert "fourteen."
900 Under the Ribbon Development Act, 1935, the local authority before giving certain consent under that Act have to consult with the Minister and under this Bill it would be their duty to send particulars to the Minister and certain notices to the Applicant. The period within which this should be done is seven days, which the local authorities consider to be too short a period, particularly at holiday times and on other occasions. They suggest that fourteen days should be subsituted, and I hope that the Minister will give the Amendment favourable consideration.
