HC Deb 24 May 1939 vol 347 cc2454-5

10.47 p.m.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport (Captain Austin Hudson)

I beg to move, in page 69, line 40, at the end, to insert: (b) for the purposes of any such agreement as is referred to in Sub-section (3) or Sub-section (4) of the said Section seven, the amount of any payment to be made by the Central Electricity Board to the owners of a selected station, or to the Board by the owners of a selected station. This is little more than a drafting Amendment, because it is consequential upon paragraph (a) in the Schedule. The electricity supplied by the Board to selected stations is paid for in two ways, (1) according to a formula under Section (7) of the Electricity Supply Act, 1926, or (2), by agreement. Paragraph (a) covers point (1) and this new paragraph covers point (2).

Amendment agreed to.

Question, "That this Schedule, as amended, be the First Schedule to the Bill," put, and agreed to.
