HC Deb 30 June 1955 vol 543 c642
Mr. Deedes

I beg to move, in page 23, line 13, to leave out from "period" to the end of line 18.

Perhaps it would be convenient for the Committee if we consider the Amendment in page 23, line 27, and the one in page 23, line 32, with this Amendment, as the three go together and have this object. They ensure that paragraph (4, c) applies to the calculation of payments by the London County Council to the Metropolitan boroughs under the London equalisation scheme as it applies to calculations of the Exchequer equalisation grant. It brings London into line with the Exchequer equalisation grants. The Amendments are designed to correct a drafting defect.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendments made: In page 23, line 27, leave out "any" and insert: the amount of any Exchequer Equalisation Grant or other.

In line 30, leave out from "area" to "as" in line 31.

In line 32, at end add: 5. The last preceding paragraph shall apply in relation to payments under section ten of the Act of 1948 (which relates to payments by the London County Council to metropolitan boroughs) as that paragraph applies in relation to Exchequer Equalisation Grants.—[Mr. Deedes.]

Schedule, as amended, agreed to.
