HC Deb 24 April 1963 vol 676 c369
Mr. Leburn

I beg to move, in page 12, line 24, to leave out from first "made" to "the" and to insert "after".

Perhaps it would be for the convenience of the House, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, if with this Amendment we took the following one, in line 25.

Mr. Deputy-Speaker indicated assent.

Mr. Leburn

The effect of the Clause as it stands is that no repayment at any time could be made by a local authority unless it specifically had an application by an individual concerned for that repayment. In other words, local authorities would have neither the power nor the duty of making any repayments if they found that an error had been made. By rephrasing the proviso, we have put the matter right.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 12, line 25, at end insert: unless application therefore was made before that time".—[Mr. Leburn.]
