§ Mr. T. Fraser
I beg to move, in page 61, line 14, at the end, to insert:(6) This Section shall come into operation on the passing of this Act.Clause 77 extends for another five years the period during which local authorities can make application for grant to replace unsatisfactory houses under Part II of the Housing (Agricultural Population) (Scotland) Act, 1938. That Act would expire on 13th July, 1948, were we not to extend it by this Bill. Therefore, we want to secure that this Clause shall come into operation on the passing of the Bill. We cannot wait until this part of the Bill is brought into force by Order in Council. If we did, the Act of 1938 might expire beforehand.
§ Amendment agreed to.
