HC Deb 23 October 1961 vol 646 c576

Lords Amendment:In page 18, line 24, leave out "subsection" and insert "section".

Dr. Hill

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

This Amendment remedies a defect in drafting. As the House will recall, Clause 16 (2) ensures that a local authority which is not a fire authority shall consult a fire authority before serving a notice, and in subsection (1) there is provision for serving a notice of works. This present correction is necessary because of the erroneous reference to "subsection" where it should refer to the "section" as a whole.

Question put and agreed to.
