HC Deb 08 June 1964 vol 696 c182
Sir E. Boyle

I beg to move in page 17, line 20, column 3, at the beginning to insert: In section 305, in the definition of 'The Adoptive Acts' the words 'and (e) The Public Libraries Acts 1892 to 1919'. This distinctly technical Amendment has the effect of removing the Public Libraries Acts, 1892 to 1919, from the definition of "The Adoptive Acts" in Section 305 of the Local Government Act, 1933. As the Bill is not adoptive, we thought it right, for drafting reasons, to specify the Bill in addition to the Adoptive Acts in Section 193(5) and to delete the Public Libraries Acts from the list of Adoptive Acts in Section 305. How many people would have noticed this omission if we had not proposed this Amendment, I am not sure. I commend the Amendment to the House.

Amendment agreed to.
