HC Deb 05 March 1948 vol 448 c681
Mr. Molson

I beg to move, in page 68, line 30, at the end, to insert: in Section one hundred and sixty-six, the proviso to Subsection (I). This Amendment is to meet a request of some of the Metropolitan Boroughs to repeal the proviso to Section 166 (I) of the Local Government Act, 1939, which would make it impossible for the London County Council to delegate any of their Poor Law functions to the Metropolitan Boroughs.

Mr. J. Edwards

It would be a pity to disturb the harmony of the Committee, and I am very happy to accept this Amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Schedule, as amended, agreed to.

Bill as amended (in the Standing Committee and on recommittal), considered.
