HC Deb 25 May 1950 vol 475 c2289
The Solicitor-General

I beg to move, in page 1, line 5, after "Where," to insert: whether on the representations of owners or occupiers of agricultural land or otherwise, and after such consultation with any such owners and occupiers as the appropriate authority consider requisite. This Amendment is designed to meet a proposal of the noble Lord the Member for Dorset, South (Viscount Hinchingbrooke), that the Clause should be redrafted in such a way as to make it perfectly clear that the initiative for a cattle-grid may also come from owners and occupiers of agricultural land. It also provides for consultations to be held with those persons when desirable.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 2, line 4, leave out from second "by," to end of line 5, and insert "section nine of this Act."—[The Solicitor-General.]
