HC Deb 29 April 1958 vol 587 cc332-3

Lords Amendment: In page 5, line 15, after "Postmaster-General" insert "or by an Electricity Board".

Mr. Neave

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

It might be convenient if we considered with this Amendment the two following Lords Amendments, to lines 30 and 35 respectively.

The purpose of this Amendment is to give existing and new submarine cables some protection. They may be maintained by an electricity board. I understand that the South West Wales Electricity Board has cables and may be likely to have cables in future under the waters of Milford Haven and they should have some protection such as is given to cables placed by or maintained by the Postmaster-General.

This Amendment covers protection against having materials deposited in such a way as to cover cables or to impede in any way the inspection and maintenance of such cables.

Question put and agreed to.

Further Lords Amendments agreed to: In line 30, after "Postmaster-General" insert "or by an Electricity Board".

In line 35, after "Postmaster-General" insert "or Electricity Board".—[Mr. Neave.]
