§ Brought up, and read the First time.
§ 6.0 p.m.
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (Mr. J. R. Bevins)
I beg to move, That the Clause be read a Second time.
Perhaps I should explain briefly that the effect of this proposed Clause is simply to set out more clearly the various provisions affecting county reviews in special cases. It adds nothing to the Bill as it was before Standing Committee and merely clarifies a certain number of provisions.
§ Question put and agreed to.
§ Clause read a Second time, and added to the Bill.
