§ Mr. Fox
Line 4 of schedule 7 provides for the repeal of section 48(4) of the General Rate Act 1967, but repeals to that Act are dealt with also in part II of schedule 27—which is the schedule dealing with repeals—of this Bill. It is convenient for practitioners if all repeals relating to a particular Act are drawn together in one place. Accordingly, this amendment removes the repeal of section 48(4) of the General Rate Act 1967 from schedule 7 to this Bill and amendment 276 will provide for the repeal to be included in part II of schedule 27. This is a simple tidying-up operation.
1377 Amendment No. 228 seeks to bring the wording used in schedule 6 into line with that used in clause 48, which requires a rate support grant report to specify all the determinations required by Part VI. Amendment No. 229 simply seeks to remove all references to paragraph 5, schedule 2 of the Local Government Act 1974. The amendment is a consequence of amendment No. 443, which incorporated paragraph 5 of schedule 2, appropriately reworded to schedule 8 of the Bill. Paragraph 5 of schedule 2 of the Local Government Act 1974 is to be repealed in due course by order under clause 42 (10)(c). I commend the amendments to the House.
§ Amendment agreed to.
