§ Page 14, line 15. The Commons have reinserted subsections (1) and (2) of Clause 11 (which were formally omitted by the Lords, on Third Reading, as Privilege Amendments) in the following form:
§ ("(1) The powers of a local authority under Section sixty-eight of the Public Health Act, 1925 (which relates to the provision of parking places for the purpose of relieving or preventing congestion of traffic), shall include power to provide and maintain buildings for use as parking places, and to provide and maintain underground parking places, for the like purpose, and also to provide and maintain cloakrooms and other conveniences for use in connection with parking places, and in that section the expression 'parking place' shall be construed accordingly as including such buildings, underground parking places, cloakrooms and other conveniences, so, however, that for the purposes of that section an underground parking place shall not be deemed to be part of a street by reason only of its being situated tinder a street.
§ (2) The powers of a local authority under the said Section sixty-eight to acquire, utilise, and adapt land shall include powers to acquire, utilise, and adapt land (including any right in, over or under land) for the purpose of providing means of entrance to and egress from any parking place and, notwithstanding anything in subsection (4) of the said section, the said power to adapt land shall include power to adapt land being part of a street for the purpose aforesaid with the consent of the authority or person responsible for the maintenance of the street.")
§ THE EARL OF PLYMOUTH
My Lords, save for a drafting Amendment and the insertion of the words "as to provision and maintenance of cloakrooms and other conveniences for use in connection with parking places," this Amendment is identical in terms with the words of the Bill as it left your Lordships' House. I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons Amendment.
§ Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(The Earl of Plymouth.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
