HL Deb 19 May 1896 vol 40 cc1673-4

The Locomotives Act, 1861 (24 & 25 Vict. c. 70).

Section forty-one of the Thames Embankment Act, 1862 (25 & 26 Vict, c. 93).

The Locomotives Act. 1865 (28 & 29 Vict, c. 83).

The Locomotives Amendment (Scotland) Act, 1878 (41 & 42 Vict, c. 58).

The Highways and Locomotives (Amendment) Act 1878 (41 & 42 Viet. c. 77).

So much of section six of the Public Health (Ireland) Amendment Act, 1879 (42 & 43 Vict, c. 57) as relates to the hours during which locomotives are not to pass over roads or highways.

*LORD HARRIS moved, after "24 and 25 Vict. c. 70," to insert "except so much of section one as relates to tolls on locomotives." He explained that the object of the Amendment was to make it clear that tolls could be collected on these light locomotives as well as heavier ones; there were still a certain number of bridges on which tolls were collected, and without this Amendment there might be some doubt whether these tolls could be levied on these light locomotives.

Amendment agreed to.

*LORD HARRIS moved, before "The Highways and Locomotives (Amendment) Act" to insert "Part II. of." He said, it was thought desirable that part one should apply so as to enable the same legal procedure to come into operation in cases where it was considered that extraordinary traffic had damaged a road as could now be put into operation in the case of damage by ordinary carriages. The Amendment, in fact, secured the operation of the extraordinary traffic clause of the Act of 1878.

Amendment agreed to.

Bill re-committed to the Standing Committee; and to be printed as amended.—[No. 107.]
