HC Deb 29 April 1958 vol 587 c334

Lords Amendment: In page 10, line 1, leave out subsection (2) and insert: (2) Section seventy-eight of the Harbours, Docks, and Piers Clauses Act, 1847 (which requires the sanction of the Trinity House for lighthouses, lights, beacons and sea marks) is hereby incorporated with this Act as if the reference therein to the undertakers were a reference to the Board.

Mr. Neave

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

This is a drafting Amendment, designed to bring the wording of the Bill into line with legislation in regard to other harbour authorities by incorporating Section 78 of the Harbours, Docks and Piers Clauses Act, 1847. Otherwise, the authorities at Trinity House would be in a position of having to administer Milford Haven under provisions different from elsewhere. They have requested that this provision should be incorporated, and it seemed the sensible thing to do.

Question put and agreed to.
