HC Deb 26 October 1966 vol 734 c1208

1.0 a.m.

Mr. Willey

I beg to move Amendment No. 20, in page 11, to leave out lines 37 to 43.

Perhaps with this Amendment we could also discuss Amendment No. 21. This Clause deals with registration and revocation. The point was raised that the revocation itself should be registered. This Amendment provides for this in effect to be done.

Mr. Graham Page

I rise to express gratitude to the Minister for this Amendment. I do not think he believed us in Committee. It was a case of practical solicitors talking, and he thought that we were making a lot of fuss. I am very glad that he has taken our advice and has moved this Amendment. It will be a great help in conveyancing practice.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 12, line 22, at end insert: (5) Where a compulsory purchase order is made by the Commission in respect of land in England or Wales, it shall be the duty of the Commission, as soon as may be after—

  1. (a) the order is made, or
  2. (b) in consequence of any proceedings the order is quashed in respect of all or any part of the land comprised in the order, or
  3. (c) the order is revoked by the Commission in respect of all or any part of that land, or
  4. (d) by virtue of section 4 of the Compulsory Purchase Act 1965 the powers exercisable in pursuance of the order cease to be exercisable in respect of all or any part of that land,
to give notice of the event in question to the proper officer of any council by whom the order is required to be registered under subsection (1) of this section, and to furnish him with all such information relating to the order, or to the event in question, as is needed to enable him to perform any duties imposed on him by rules made under section 15(6) of the Land Charges Act 1925.—[Mr. Willey.]
