§ As amended (in the Select Committee) (not amended on recommittal to the Standing Committee), considered.
§ 4.1 p.m.
§ Mr. Deputy-Speaker (Sir Samuel Storey)
I think that it would be convenient to discuss with new Clause No. 1 the first Amendment, in Clause 2, page 2, line 27, at end insert:Provided that the scales shall not be so fixed as to produce a greater revenue than in the opinion of the Minister would be equal, taking one year with another, to the total of the following amounts, that is to say—
- (a) the expenditure to be incurred by him under this Act;
- (b) the repair and maintenance of the specified carriageways; and
- (c) the sums required to amortise over a period not exceeding forty years the cost incurred in providing the specified carriageways.
