HC Deb 25 October 1972 vol 843 c1272

Lords Amendment: No. 402, in page 171, line 23, at end insert (2) In this section "local authority" includes the Common Council.

Mr. Graham Page

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

I understand that with this Amendment we may discuss Lords Amendment No. 403.

The Amendments are similar to Lords Amendments which we discussed yesterday, Lords Amendments Nos. 162, 188, 189 and 190. Like them, they are to give the Common Council duties which it would not otherwise possess. The Common Council must be specifically referred to if it is to have specific powers or duties.

Question put and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendment agreed to.
