HC Deb 25 October 1972 vol 843 cc1252-3

Lords Amendment: No. 324, in page 138, line 5, after "council" insert: (b) if the land is in a London borough, the council of that borough

Mr. Graham Page

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

Subsection (2) of the Clause amends the Commons Registration Act, 1965, so as to vest unclaimed town or village greens sometimes in the parish or community council and sometimes in the district council.
