HC Deb 21 July 1961 vol 644 c1651

Lords Amendment: In page 15, line 21, at end insert new Clause A: Where the value on which a drainage rate is assessed would, apart from this section, include a fraction of a pound, the fraction shall, if greater than ten shillings, be treated as one pound and shall in any other case be disregarded.

Mr. Vane

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

It is an exact counterpart to the first Amendment and makes the same procedure applicable to the collection of drainage rates as we have already provided in connection with drainage charges.

Question put and agreed to. [Special Entry.]
