HL Deb 07 August 1890 vol 348 cc73-4

Order of the Day for the Third Reading, read.

Bill read 3a (according to order).


The Amendment which has been proposed in this Bill will, I am sure, commend itself to your Lordships' House. It is merely to provide that where land in the Metropolis or in large towns is devoted expressly by the Trust upon which it is held for an open space, it shall not be built upon by virtue of the provisions of this Act.

Amendment moved, in Clause 8, page 3, line 21, insert— ("Provided that land situated in the metropolis or in any town of over twenty thousand inhabitants which is held on trusts to be pre- served as an open space, or on trusts which prohibit building thereon, shall not be granted or conveyed for the purposes of this Act.")—(The Lord Thring.)

Agreed to.

Bill passed, and returned to the Commons.
