HC Deb 11 February 1959 vol 599 cc1306-7
The Solicitor-General for Scotland

I beg to move, in page 32, line 38, after "Act", to insert:

  1. "(a) to a building for the construction of which an application for approval has been made, and not disposed of, before the commencement of this Act, and
  2. (b)."
The Amendment refers to an application which, on the date of the coming into force of the building regulations, has been made but has not yet been disposed of. In such a case, there is no reason why the applicant should not be able, if he wishes, to take advantage of Clause 4, which permits relaxation of the code in approved cases.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 33, line 12, leave out "to" and insert "of".—[The Solicitor-General for Scotland.]
