I beg to move, in page 43, line 28, to leave out "exercise," and to insert "discharge."
This is mainly a drafting Amendment. It is thought to be more appropriate to put in the word "discharge," instead 1362 of the word "exercise," in order to make a little point clear, namely, that a local planning authority may borrow to finance the purchase of land which they are required to purchase under Clause 27. As Clause 38 is drafted it might be argued that the provision in Clause 27, which is forced upon the authority, is not covered. While the main structure of the Bill is to empower local authorities to borrow money, in Clause 27 they are forced to do it, and it is thought right to bring this Clause into line as well.
§ Amendment agreed to.
I beg to move, in page 43, line 29, to leave out "the powers conferred on them by," and to insert "their functions under."
This, again, is a drafting Amendment to make a certain point clear. It arises out of what I have previously said and I hope that the Committee will agree to it.
§ Amendment agreed to
§ Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
§ Clause 39 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
