HC Deb 19 November 1954 vol 533 c707

Lords Amendment: In page 8, line 18, leave out "kept at" and insert: provided for that purpose by the owner of.

Mr. Joynson-Hicks

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

This is a paving Amendment in response to an undertaking to which effect has been given in a new Clause to replace Clause 132, which provides that the books which must be kept at the office of a mine or quarry may either be kept there or, subject to the approval of the inspector, may be kept at another place, because there are certain quarries where it is not convenient for them to be kept at the office of those quarries.

Mr. Tom Brown (Ince)

Am I to understand from what the Parliamentary Secretary has said that the premises on which these records shall be kept are to be colliery premises or away from the colliery premises?

Mr. Joynson-Hicks

They would only be kept on premises other than colliery premises which are approved by an inspector.

Question put, and agreed to.
