HC Deb 19 July 1949 vol 467 c1181
Mr. Silkin

I beg to move, in page 30, line 16, at the end, to insert: Provided that, in relation to the creation of rights of way in a National Park, this subsection shall have effect as if—

  1. (a) references to the council of a county included references to a local planning authority whose area consists of or includes any part of the Park, and
  2. (b) references to a county district in the county included references to a county borough or county district any part of which is comprised in the area of such a local planning authority."
This Amendment gives effect to a promise which I made to my hon. Friend the Member for Cambridge (Mr. Symonds) to the effect that machinery should be provided by which the Minister could, if it was thought desirable, transfer the functions of creating new rights of way from the county district councils and the county borough councils to a joint planning board. This Amendment achieves that.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 30, line 25, leave out from "subsection," to second "the," in line 28.—[Mr. Silkin.]

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