§ Mr. Chataway
I beg to move, in page 13, line 23, at the end to insert:(3) In the proviso to section 94 of the Local Government Act 1933 inserted by section 10(1) of the Education Act 1946 (by virtue of which teachers in institutions maintained or assisted by a local education authority are excepted from disqualification from membership of local authority committees appointed for certain purposes), the following shall be substituted for paragraph (c):(c) appointed under this Act for purposes connected with the execution of the Public Libraries and Museums Act 1964;(4) In section 193(5) of the Local Government Act 1933 (which restricts the sums which can be required to be raised in any financial year to meet the expenses of a parish meeting), after the words "the adoptive Acts" there shall be inserted the words "or the Public Libraries and Museums Act 1964"; and in 177 Schedule 1 to the Parish Councils Act 1957 (which specifies expenses of a parish council which are to be disregarded for the purposes of section 193(3) of the Local Government Act 1933), the following shall be substituted for paragraph 2:2. Any expenditure under the Public Libraries and Museums Act 1964".The Amendment proposes to insert in the Clause two new subsections. The first deals with the constitution of committees appointed by local authorities for the purpose of exercising their functions under the Bill. The Amendment substitutes the present Bill for a number of Acts which previously applied. The effect is to enable teachers to serve on library committees. The second subsection deals with the amount of the rates which may be levied in parishes and this equally does not change existing legislation. It merely ensures that it continues despite the passing of the Bill.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Further Amendment made: In page 13, line 28, leave out "Minister" and insert "Secretary of State".—[Mr. Chataway.]
§ Sir E. Boyle
I beg to move, in page 13, line 35, to leave out from "on" to the end of line 37 and to insert "1st April 1965".
The Amendment fixes 1st April, 1965, as the date on which the Act will come into force and meets the promise which I gave to the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Mr. Boyden) in Committee.
§ Amendment agreed to.
