HC Deb 10 July 1964 vol 698 cc811-2

Lords Amendment: In page 110, leave out line 12.

Sir K. Joseph

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

With the permission of the House, I should like to take this Amendment and the following two together.

Mr. Deputy-Speaker

If that is the wish of the House.

Sir K. Joseph

The effect of these three Amendments is to make Part I of the Bill, together with a few Clauses in Part V of the Bill which are connected with Part I, effective on the passage of the Bill into law. Whereas Parts II, III and IV of the Bill will need a certain amount of preparatory advice from my Department and will involve the local authorities in a certain amount of preparatory thought and work and therefore we are content that they should come into effect a month after the passage of the Bill into law, Part I of the Bill can lead to action immediately.

That is why these Amendments are proposed, and I hope that they are acceptable to the House.

Question put and agreed to.

Remaining Lords Amendments agreed to. [Special entries.]
