Mr. G. Campbell

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

The purpose of the Amendment is to allow local authorities to pay removal expenses and allowances for disturbance to people who are displaced as a result of a compulsory purchase order made under the Clause.
