HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c1412

Lords Amendment: In page 13, line 45, leave out subsection (2) and insert: (2) Where the Minister is of opinion that an order should be made

  1. (a) under section six of the Public Health Act, 1936, by virtue of paragraph (a) of the preceding subsection, or
  2. (b) under section nine of that Act amending or revoking an order made as mentioned in paragraph (a) of this subsection, or
  3. (c) under paragraph (b) of the preceding subsection,
he shall give notice of that opinion to all authorities appearing to him to be concerned, setting out a provisional draft of an order and stating a period, not less than twenty-eight days, within which objections may be made and if either no objection is made by any such authority within the time stated in the notice or all objections so made are withdrawn, the order may be made in the terms of the provisional draft, or with such modifications only as appear to the Minister to be immaterial; but an order shall not be made in any other case unless a draft of the order has been laid before Parliament and approved by resolution of each House of Parliament.

10.15 p.m.

Mr. H. Macmillan

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

This is a drafting Amendment consequential on the one which we have just carried. Having substituted the special Parliamentary procedure for the affirmative Resolution in Clause 13, unless we pass this Amendment it would leave subsection (2) of Clause 20 with nothing to apply to except orders under Clause 15.

Question put, and agreed to.
