HC Deb 11 November 1954 vol 532 cc1502-3
Dr. Hill

I beg to move, in page 12, to leave out lines 23 to 36, and to insert: (4) If on the coming into operation of any regulations under this section in relation to any class of business, local Act provisions are in force in any district, being provisions under which persons engaged in that class of business are required to be licensed or registered, the regulations so far as they relate to that class of business shall not apply to that district until such date as may be appointed by an order made by the Minister upon application in that behalf made by the local authority. (5) Where an order is made in relation to any district under subsection (4) of this section, that order—

  1. (a) may repeal such local Act provisions as are mentioned in that subsection so far as they relate to that district and to the class of business in relation to which the regulations under this section have effect; and
  2. (b) shall provide for securing that persons licensed or registered under those provisions are, in relation to any business of the said class in which they are engaged, treated as licensed under the regulations.
The Amendment replaces subsection (4) by two new subsections. There is no essential change in the meaning, but we think it clearer on the point of the super-session of private Acts on matters which are the subject of regulations under the Bill.

Amendment agreed to.
