HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 cc1675-6

Lords Amendment: In page 15, line 19, leave out "This Part of this Act" and insect: The provisions of this Part of this Act relating to site licences".

Sir K. Joseph

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

As drafted, the whale of Part I is applied to Crown land in cases where the occupier is not the Crown. Part I is almost entirely concerned with site licences, but there is a power of compulsory purchase in Clause 21. The Amendment maintains the application of all the site licensing contents of Part I to such land, but excludes that compulsory purchase power. Local authorities can acquire such land by agreement.

Question put and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendment agreed to.
