HC Deb 24 July 1969 vol 787 c2214

Lords Amendment No. 25: In page 48, line 32, leave out from "capacity" to end of line 34.

Mr. MacColl

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

The Amendment removes the restriction on the cost of works carried out by housing authorities—works for improvement and standard contributions and for contributions towards environmental improvements.

The restriction in the Bill as drafted followed that applicable to contributions under other legislation. It does not seem necessary to have it, and the Amendment will remove the restriction from the local authority. For this reason, I think that that is to be welcomed.

Question put and agreed to.
