§ Sir John Eden (Bournemouth, West)
I beg to move, in page 8, line 40, after "Grant", to insert "or Exchequer Equalisation Grant".
This is purely a technical Amendment necessary because the increase in expenditure to which the Bill gives rise could in theory, under an enactment relating to local government in Scotland, be reflected in the Exchequer equalisation grant.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
§ Clauses 15 to 17 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
§ Bill reported, with an Amendment; as amended (in the Standing Committee and on recommittal), considered.
§ [Queen's Consent, on behalf of the Crown, signified]
§ Bill read the Third time and passed, with Amendments.
