HL Deb 20 July 1926 vol 65 c95

Page 2, line 24, leave out from ("any") to ("is") in line 25 and insert ("such drain within the county or county borough").


My Lords, the next Amendment on the Paper is for the omission of the words in the third and fourth lines of Clause 2, "any drain within the meaning of this Act," and the substitution of the words "such drain within the county or county borough." The object of this Amendment is to make it clear that it is the place where the obstruction occurs, and not the place where the resulting damage occurs, which must be within the area of the objecting authority in order to justify such authority in giving notice that the drain must be put in proper order. It is in fact, a drafting amendment.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(Lord Bledisloe.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
