HC Deb 29 April 1958 vol 587 c266
Mr. Godber

I beg to move, in page 15, to leave out lines 9 and 10.

This is a very small drafting point. This definition was put in at an earlier stage of the Bill in relation to Clause 2 as it then existed. Clause 2 has suffered some minor changes since then, and, for that reason, this definition is no longer required.

Amendment agreed to.

Mr. Hare

I beg to move, in page 15, line 25 after "five", to insert: or section (Isolation of slaughterhalls from dwellings)". This Amendment is a consequential one arising from the new Clause (Isolation of slaughterhalls from dwellings) to which the House has already agreed. This subsection provides that the licensing functions of local authorities under this Bill may be carried out by a joint local authority board. There is one such board at the moment, the Wessex Slaughterhouses Board, but it is conceivable that there may be others in future. I think it is right that the functions of local authorities in relation to the isolation of slaughterhalls from dwellings should also in these cases be carried out by joint boards, and that is the purpose of the Amendment.

Amendment agreed to.
