HC Deb 21 July 1961 vol 644 c1653

Lords Amendment: In page 26, line 29, leave out from "by" to "which" in line 30 and insert: or allowed to him under this section

Mr. Vane

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

This is an exact counterpart to an earlier Amendment which we have approved. It makes it clear that where an owner acts as the agent of the drainage board and collects drainage rates, he, in his turn, shall be entitled to collect the full amount. There is no doubt that the 10 per cent. allowance is his agency fee for doing that task.

Question put and agreed to. [Special Entry.]
