Lords Amendment: In page 103, line 36, leave out subsection (4), and insert:
(4) For the purposes of this Act, premises for he time being used for depositing refuse from a single mine or quarry, being premises exclusively occupied by the owner of that mine or quarry, shall be deemed to form part of that mine or quarry, and premises for the time being used for depositing refuse from two or more mines or quarries, being premises occupied by the owner of one of those mines Or quarries (either exclusively or jointly with the owner of the other or any of the others) shall be deemed to form part of such one of those mines or quarries as the Minister may direct.
§ Mr. Joynson-Hicks
I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."
The Amendment clears up a small point about responsibility for refuse dumps. Its effect is to render the mine or quarry owner responsible for the dump where he puts his refuse only where that dump is exclusively occupied by that mine or quarry owner.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Subsequent Lords Amendments, to the Amendment in page 107, line 1, agreed to.
