HL Deb 25 July 1898 vol 62 cc1046-7

"Page 38, line 32, after 'exemptions,' insert 'provided that where in any borough the council can under any existing general or local Act make such rate upon the landlord or immediate lessor and not upon the occupier, this section shall not apply unless the council of such borough by a majority of two-thirds of the members present at a meeting specially summoned, resolve to adopt the provisions of this section instead of the provisions of the existing Act.'"—(Marquess of Londonderry.)


My Lords, I beg to withdraw this Amendment, and to substitute the following— Provided that the foregoing provisions of this section shall not apply to a rate under a local act in any county borough, if the council of that borough, by a majority of not less than two-thirds of the members present, and at a meeting specially summoned for the purpose, so resolve.
