§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
I beg to move, in page 54, line 25, to leave out "with the concurrence," and to insert "on the application."
This Amendment and the next four Amendments are designed to enable a local fisheries committee to take the initiative of applying for varying or revoking an order. At present the initiative lies solely with the council. With all the preoccupations of the county council it is sometimes difficult to get matters 656 attended to as they should be. The Clause would enable the Minister to make an amending or revoking order without an application from the council provided the Committee concurred. On consideration I thought it was preferable that the initiative should rest either with the council or with the committee and the Amendments are drafted to achieve this end.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Further Amendments made: In page 54, line 26, after "committee," insert "and after consultation with every county or borough council."
§ In line 30, leave out "either.":
§ In line 31, leave out "with the concurrence," and insert "made on the application.":
§ In line 32, after "committee," insert "and after consultation with every county or borough council."—[Mr. W. S. Morrison.]
