Dr. Dickson Mahon

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.

The technical device available to us on the last Amendment, which I am glad the House disagreed with, is available to us in this regard, too. It simply corrects a new paragraph in Schedule 2 to make adaptations to the New Towns Act which has been found to be needed as a consequence of this Bill.

Question put and agreed to.

Remaining Lords Amendment agreed to.

Committee appointed to draw up reasons to be assigned to the Lords for disagreeing to certain of their Amendments to the Bill: Mr. James Bennett, Mr. G. Campbell, Mr. Gourlay, Dr. Dickson Mabon and Mr. MacArthur; Three to be the quorum.—[Dr. Dickson Mabon.]

To withdraw immediately.

Reasons for disagreeing to certain of the Lords Amendments reported, and agreed to: to be communicated to the Lords.
