HL Deb 21 October 1909 vol 4 c312

Order of the Day for the House to be put into Committee, read.

Moved, That the House do now resolve itself into Committee—(Lord Marchamley.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.

House in Committee accordingly.

[THE EARL OF ONSLOW in the Chair.]

Clause 1:

1. From and after the passing of this Act the council of any urban or rural district, or the commissioners of any town not being an urban district may advertise the advantages and amenities of the district, or any part of it, or of the town, as a health resort or watering-place, by the insertion of advertisements in newspapers, or by placards or otherwise, as they may see fit, and may expend money for the purpose, provided that the sums so expended shall not in any one financial year exceed the amount that could be raised by a rate of one penny in the pound on the rateable value of the district or town.

THE EARL OF DONOUGHMORE moved to amend the clause by inserting, after the word "newspapers," the words "not published within the area of charge." He understood that the noble Lord in charge of the Bill would accept this Amendment.


Yes, I accept it.

THE EARL OF DONOUGHMORE said that in that case he would not detain their Lordships, but would merely thank the noble Lord and his friends for the very kind way in which they had met the objection covered by the Amendment.

Amendment moved— In page 1, line, 10 after 'newspapers,' to insert 'not published within the area of charge.'"—(The Earl of Donoughmore.)

On Question, Amendment agreed to.

Clause 1, as amended, agreed to.

Remaining clauses agreed to.

Standing Committee negatived: The Report of the Amendment to be received on Monday next, and Bill to be printed as amended. (No. 204.)
