HC Deb 12 March 1964 vol 691 c770
Mr. Brooke

I beg to move, in page 2, line 43, after "shall" to insert: subject to subsection (4) of this section".

Mr. Deputy-Speaker

I wonder whether he House would agree to discuss with this Amendment the following five Amendments, which are all related to the same matter: In page 3, line 14, at the end to insert: (4) If the constituent councils request that the combined police authority to be constituted by are amalgamation scheme should be a committee of one of those councils, the scheme shall constitute the combined police authority a committee of that council instead of a body corporate; and the provisions of Schedule (combined police authority constituted as committee of constituent council) to this Act shall have effect with respect to such a scheme and a combined police authority so constituted. In Clause 21, page 12, line 14, at the end to insert: (6) Before approving or making an amalgamation scheme the Secretary of State shall ascertain to whether the constituent councils desire to make such a request as is referred to in section 3(4) of this Act.
