HC Deb 03 August 1976 vol 916 cc1582-3

Lords amendment: No. 26, in page 28, line 24, after "295" insert ",section 313".

Mr. Guy Barnett

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

This amendment was made to prevent the repeal of Section 313 of the Act of 1936 by this clause from having an undesirable side effect. Subsection (6) of the clause as it left this House made it clear that the repeal of Sections 295 and 314 of the Public Health Act 1936 did not affect any Order made under those sections which might still be in force. We realised that it was possible that Orders made under Section 313 might also still exist, and these should likewise be allowed to continue. Without the amendment, the repeal of Section 313 would allow them to lapse, with the result that any amended local Act provision would revert to its original unacceptable form.

Question put and agreed to.
