HC Deb 08 May 1967 vol 746 cc1186-7

Lords Amendment: No. 2, in page 8, line 24, leave out "1964" and insert "1965".

Mr. Mellish

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

Mr. Speaker

It would be convenient to take at the same time Amendments Nos. 3, 5 and 7.

Mr. Mellish

These are related drafting Amendments. At certain points in Clauses 9, 11 and 14, it is necessary to make a collective citation of the various Acts under which local authorities carry out their housing functions. These Amendments bring the collective citation up to date by including the Housing (Slum Clearance Compensation Act, 1965. That is the sole purpose of the Amendments.

Question put and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendment agreed to.
