HC Deb 27 July 1938 vol 338 c3256

Lords Amendment: Leave out lines 21 and 22, and insert: Provided that Nothing in the said Section five shall be taken to affect Section sixty of the London County Council (General Powers) Act, 1934. (2) The provisions of Section one of this Act, so far as they relate to the provision of fire services for any borough or district by other fire authorities, shall have effect so as to enable such fire services to be provided by the London County Council, and accordingly the references in Sub-sections (3) and (5) of Section one to other fire authorities and the references in Sub-section (4) thereof to a tire authority shall be construed as including references to the London County Council; and the duty of a fire authority (not including the London County Council) under Sub-section (5) of Section one of this Act may be discharged, either in whole or in part, by entering into arrangements with the London County Council under Section forty-nine of the London County Council (General Powers) Act, 1936.

Mr. Speaker

This Amendment raises a question of Privilege.

Mr. Lloyd

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

This is an Amendment of a drafting character which is necessitated by the fact that the London County Council Fire Brigade operate under a separate Act. It has been agreed to by the London County Council.

Question put, and agreed to.—[Special entry.]

Subsequent Lords Amendment in page 21, line 42, agreed to.
