HC Deb 19 July 1974 vol 877 c862

The Director may vary or revoke any determination or direction made or given by him under this Act (other than Part III, or Part III as applied by section 148).—[Mr. Alan Williams.]

Brought up, and read the First time.

11.25 a.m.

The Minister of State, Department of Prices and Consumer Protection (Mr. Alan Williams)

I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

Mr. Speaker

With this clause we may also discuss Government amendments Nos. 13, 15 and 18.

Mr. Williams

The clause provides desirable extra flexibility for the director in his power to make various determinations. It is conceivable that it would be in everyone's interest at certain times that he might wish to vary or revoke those determinations, and the clause makes that possible. The amendments we are discussing with the clause are paving amendments for it.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause read a Second time and added to the Bill.
