HC Deb 15 April 1937 vol 322 cc1309-10
The Lord Advocate

I beg to move in, page 24, line 21, at the end, to insert: Provided that, without prejudice to the provisions of the Interpretation Act, 1899, any table of rates fixed, any lease of rates granted, any by-law, or any appointment made or any other thing done under the first-mentioned Act, shall, if in force at the commencement of this Act, continue in force, and shall, so far as it could have been fixed, granted, made or done under or in pursuance of this Act, be deemed to have been so fixed, granted, made or done. The sole purpose of this is to save existing contracts under the Act of 1891, which we later repeal.

Amendment agreed to.
