§ "The Minister shall—
- (a)as respects any land held on behalf of the Crown and appropriated for the use of the Minister for the purpose of carrying out experiments with explosives; or
- (b)as respects any other land which the Minister has the right to use for the said purpose,
§ 1.28 a.m.
§ This is a new Clause which, I think, carries its own justification. We have found in practice that it is not at all convenient having to wait until land 1992 available at Shoeburyness for the purpose of experiments with high explosives can be placed at our disposal for experiments we wish to carry out. We are in treaty to secure a suitable area of land on which we can carry out our own experiments and in the expectation that we shall succeed in obtaining that land we are seeking by this Clause by-law making powers similar in every respect to those possessed already by the military authorities.
§ Subsequent Lords Amendments to page 59, line 22, agreed to.
