HC Deb 25 October 1967 vol 751 c1655

Lords Amendment No. 19: In page 32, line 41, leave out from beginning to "which" and insert: under, in, upon, over, along or across

Dr. Mabon

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

Perhaps with this we could comfortably take Lords Amendment No. 20, Mr. Speaker.

Mr. Speaker

So be it.

Dr. Mabon

Both Amendments deal with the same drafting point. The three extra prepositions are needed to make the wording sufficiently comprehensive to cover all the possibilities as precedented in other Acts including the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act, 1947, section 111(2).

Question put and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendment agreed to.
