HC Deb 04 February 1965 vol 705 c1331

Amendment made: In page 7, leave out lines 26 to 33.—[Mr. Ross.]

Dr. Dickson Mabon

I beg to move Amendment No. 6, in page 7, line 37, to leave out "direct" and insert "by order prescribe".

This is a drafting Amendment. Section 28(7) of the 1951 Act provides that every river purification authority shall maintain a register, containing such particulars as the Secretary of State may by Order prescribe, of consents which have been granted under the Section. Clause 7(2), however, refers to inclusion in this register of such particulars as the Secretary of State may direct. We feel that it would be inconsistent to provide by Order for particulars in the register but for directions under the Bill, and the Amendment brings the Clause into line with Section 28.

Amendment agreed to.
