HC Deb 17 October 1950 vol 478 c1965
Mr. Barnes

I beg to move, in page 44, line 42, to leave out from "accordingly," to "a," in line 43, and to insert: for any reference to a private sewer or a drain within the meaning of the Public Health Act, 1936, there shall be substituted a reference to a sewer or. This is a Scottish application drafting Amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

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

Mr. Powell

Perhaps I might seek your guidance, Sir Charles, before we add this Clause to the Bill. There is a subsequent Amendment tabled to the First Schedule which, if the Committee agree to it, would involve an alteration to the Scottish application in this Clause. In adding this Clause to the Bill, are we keeping the issue on the First Schedule open for discussion?

The Deputy-Chairman

Yes. We shall discuss that point on the Amendment in page 52, line 15, to leave out from the beginning, to "is," in line 18.

Question put, and agreed to.

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

Clause 36 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
