HC Deb 17 July 1968 vol 768 c1608

Lords Amendment No. 11: In page 24, line 8, after "without" insert "unreasonable".

Mr. Buchan

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

Under this Clause a local authority can require an owner or occupier of land to produce to it plans of a sewer or drain, and so on. We have put in the word "unreasonable" because as it stands I understand that no expenditure could be made at all—not even in respect of a postage stamp or a telephone call. We have therefore put in this word. I understand the local authorities are pleased that this Amendment should be made.

Question put and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendments agreed to.
