§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill."
§ Captain Duncan (Kensington, North)
I see that the definition of a local authority isany local authority being, within the meaning of the Local Loans Act, 1875, an authority having power to levy a rate.The London County Council was not formed in 1875 and does not levy a rate. It issues precepts on the borough councils who levy the rates in respect of their own expenditure and that of the London County Council. Is the London County Council, therefore, exempt from this Bill or not?
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Clause ordered to stand part of the Bill.
§ Clauses 9 and 10 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
