HC Deb 13 July 1949 vol 467 cc576-7

10.45 p.m.

Mr. Woodburn

I beg to move, in page 20, line 44, after "Association," to insert "or a development corporation."

This Amendment provides grants to new town corporations for building experiments. It therefore puts these cor- porations in the same position as the local authorities and the Scottish Special Housing Association. The new town corporations are at the moment custodians for the eventual local authorities, and we feel it would be quite wrong if they were not able to do what the local authorities would be able to do if they were already established.

Commander Galbraith (Glasgow, Pollok)

All this does is to rectify an omission.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendments made: In page 21, line 14, after "Association," insert "or a development corporation."

In page 21, line 20, after "Association," insert "or corporation."—[Mr. Woodburn.]

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