HC Deb 31 May 1951 vol 488 c422

4.15 p.m.

Mr. Dalton

I beg to move, in page 1, line 16, after "county," to insert "or county borough."

This is designed to assist the Croydon Corporation. It does not so appear on the face of the Amendment, but that is its purpose. At the moment the Croydon Corporation may exercise authority by means of the 1876 Act and they are the only county borough so set out.

Amendment agreed to.
