HC Deb 09 October 1946 vol 427 c226
Mr. Collick

I beg to move, in page 6, line 18, to leave out "neighbouring," and to insert "contiguous or adjacent."

This Amendment arises as a result of further consideration that was promised when this Bill was in the Standing Committee. Objection was there taken that the word "neighbouring" was too wide and too indefinite, and the Minister undertook to see if a more satisfactory word or phrase could be found. As a result of that consideration we think the words "contiguous or adjacent" better meet the position and I think the Amendment will be acceptable on all sides of the House.

Mr. R. S. Hudson

We are much obliged to the hon. Gentleman for meeting our suggestion upstairs.

Amendment agreed to.
