HC Deb 05 November 1976 vol 918 c1806
The Attorney-General

I beg to move Amendment No. 12, in page 113, line 28, at end insert— ' (2) This paragraph is hereby repealed as from immediately after the time when the repeal by this Act of the entry referred to in sub-paragraph (1)(a) above has effect.' This amendment adds what is called a self-repealing provision to paragraph 5 of the schedule. It is needed because the Bill will probably come into force shortly before the coming into force of the Local Land Charges Act 1975, one provision of which it consolidates. The paragraph, therefore, will be needed at most for only a very brief period, possibly a matter of a few weeks.

The inclusion of the so-called self-repealing provision will enable the Land Drainage Act when it comes to be printed for the new edition of the statutes in force to be printed without this paragraph which will by that time be dead wood.

Amendment agreed to.

Schedule 6, as amended, agreed to.

Forward to
