HC Deb 15 July 1980 vol 988 c1341
Mr. Fox

I beg to move amendment No. 320, in page 87, line 41, at end add— '(1A) An order under this section may be made at the same time as an order under section 115 above.'. The purpose of the amendment is to make it absolutely clear that an order made under clause 116, constituting an urban development corporation, can be made at the same time as an order under clause 115, designating the corresponding urban development area. Both orders would come into effect once approved by a resolution of each House.

With the present wording of the Bill it is arguable that an order under clause 116 could not be made until the corresponding order under clause 115 came into effect. That is not the intention. As we have made clear throughout, we wish to have orders relating to both UDAs and UDCs considered by Parliament at the same time.

Amendment agreed to.

Forward to
