HC Deb 20 October 1971 vol 823 c741
The Solicitor-General

I beg to move Amendment No. 9, in page 301, leave out line 14.

This is another correction of an error. The paragraph of the Schedule as it originally stood limited the exceptions in the case of listed building consents granted by the Secretary of State to those granted to him in Part IV of the Act or under this Schedule. There are other provisions in the Act whereby he can grant such consent. If one eliminates the limiting words in line 14 and extends paragraph 6 of Schedule 11 widely enough to cover all the cases in the Bill, on that basis the drafting Amendment enables the Bill to make more sense.

Amendment agreed to.

Schedule 11, as amended, agreed to.

Schedules 12 to 22 agreed to.
