HC Deb 07 December 1949 vol 470 c1901

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill."

4.20 p.m.

Mr. R. A. Butler (Saffron Walden)

I do not think it will be necessary to detain the Committee very long in considering the details of this Measure, but certain happenings have taken place since the previous discussions. I do not know whether the Minister of Works can tell us of any development that has taken place in respect of Clause 1, before we pass it.

The Minister of Works (Mr. Key)

Yes, Sir. There was originally in Clause 1 a provision that the London County Council would be authorised to carry out work extending into the carriageway the pavement at the junction of Little George Street and Broad Sanctuary. In talks with the Middlesex County Council on that matter, it was understood that that was not desired by them, and for that reason it has been omitted.

Question put, and agreed to.

Clause ordered to stand part of the Bill.
