Lords amendment: No. 1, in page 2, line 34, after "committees" insert,
consisting of persons who are not members of the Authority,
§ The Minister for Water and Planning (Mr. Michael Howard)
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.
§ Mr. Deputy Speaker (Sir Paul Dean)
With this it will be convenient to take Lords amendments Nos. 2, 146 and 147.
§ Mr. Howard
The amendments are concerned with the membership of the National Rivers Authority's three regional committees—the rivers advisory committee, the flood defence committee and the fisheries advisory committee—and ensure that the membership of the NRA board will not overlap with the membership of those committees.
§ Question put and agreed to.
§ Lords amendment No. 2 agreed to.
