HC Deb 17 June 1981 vol 6 c1113

10.1 pm

The Under-Secretary of State for the Environment (Mr. Giles Shaw)

I beg to move amendment No. 1, in page 2, line 29, leave out '4' and insert '4A'.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

With this we may take Government amendment No. 33.

Mr. Shaw

I am grateful to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for drawing attention to the revised selection list, which I trust hon. Members on both sides of the House will be able to follow.

As hon. Members who served on the Committee will know, the Bill has two separate sets of clauses which deal with the Scottish application of the Bill as well as that pertaining to England. We shall move and speak to amendments relating to the English part of the Bill, each of which will have its Scottish equivalent. That is the case with amendment No. 1, the Scottish equivalent being amendment No. 33.

For the convenience of the House, I shall speak both to amendment. No. 1 and to No. 33. In earlier prints of the Bill we had failed to notice that schedule 3 to the Town and Country Planning Act 1971 already contains a paragraph 4A, inserted by paragraph 24 of schedule 15 to the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980. The new paragraph being inserted by the Bill must therefore become paragraph 4B.

Amendment agreed to.
