HL Deb 10 August 1914 vol 17 c498

Returned from the Commons, with the Amendment disagreed to.

Lords Amendment to which the Commons disagreed.

In subsection (1) to leave out the words "on Government works" ["On behalf Of Government Departments on Government works where sufficient dwelling accommodation"].


The Amendment, to which the House of Commons disagreed is the Amendment which your Lordships inserted leaving out the power to the Government to build in cases where Government employees only were involved. Now that the Housing (No. 2) Bill has received the assent of your Lordships it is unnecessary to insert this qualification. That was the reason why the Amendment made by your Lordships was objected to in another place, and in the circumstances I think it is quite clear that it does become an unnecessary qualification, because the Housing (No. 2) Bill gives the central authority complete power in this respect. I therefore move that this House do not insist upon the Amendment.

Moved, That the House do not insist upon the said Amendment.—(Earl Beauchamp.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.

House adjourned during pleasure.

House resumed.
