HC Deb 18 February 1948 vol 447 c1189
Mr. J. Edwards

I beg to move, in page 7, line 20, at the end, to insert: (3) Any payment under a scheme made under this Section shall, if the scheme so provides, be effected in whole or in part by making the appropriate deduction from the amount due under a precept. This Amendment provides for payments to Metropolitan boroughs to be made like the payments to district councils under Clause 9 (3). It seems a desirable arrangement, and we thereby bring the Metropolitan boroughs into the same arrangements as we have already provided for district councils.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
