Mr. Deputy Speaker
I am now required to put the Question on any amendments up to the end of schedule 2 moved by a member of the Government. There are three Government amendments and it might save the time of the House if the House were to indicate whether it desired a Division on amendments Nos. 75, 76 or 77.
Amendments made: No. 75, in page 37, line 22, at end insert—
'3A.. An appeal committee constituted in accordance with paragraph 2 or 3 above shall be included in the bodies to which sections 173(4) and 174 of the Local Government Act 1972 (allowances) apply.'.
No. 76, in page 38, line 1, after '9', insert
'Appeals pursuant to arrangements made under section 7 of this Act shall be heard in private except when otherwise directed by the authority or governors by whom the arrangements are made but'.
No. 77, in page 38, line 11, at end insert
'; and neither section 106 of the Local Government Act 1972 nor paragraph 44 of Schedule 12 to that Act (procedure of committees of local authorities) shall apply to an appeal committee constituted in accordance with paragraph 1 above.'.—[Dr. Boyson.]
