Mr. Corfield

I beg to move Amendment No. 7, in page 5, line 3, after "prepare", to insert: and submit to the Minister". This Amendment could conveniently be discussed with Amendment No. 8, in page 5, line 11, Amendment No. 9, in line 12, Amendment No. 10, also in line 12, and Amendment No. 11, in line 15.

Mr. Speaker

If the House so pleases.

Mr. Corfield

Of these Amendments, that which I have just moved is a paving Amendment. The main Amendments are Nos. 8 and 10, and Nos. 9 and 11 are consequential thereon. The main Amendments follow an undertaking that I gave in Committee on a discussion of an Amendment moved by the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Mr. Manuel) to insert words in the latter part of subsection (5) to the effect that before the Minister approves a scheme prepared by the Corporation for itself to build and manage houses, in the absence of a housing society, the local authority should be able to make representations, and the Minister should take those representations into account.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendments made: In page 5, line 11, leave out "and" and insert: (6) Before submitting to the Minister a scheme under subsection (5) of this section the Corporation shall send a copy of it to the local authority in whose area the land to which the scheme relates is situated. (7) Where a scheme under the said subsection (5) is submitted to the Minister by the Corporation.

In line 12, after "land", insert: to which the scheme relates".

In line 12, leave out "may" and insert: and that the requirements of the last foregoing subsection have been complied with, and after considering any representations which may be made to him by the local authority in whose area the land is situated, may, if he thinks fit".

In line 15, leave out "subsection (5) of".—[Mr Corfield.]
