HL Deb 01 August 1935 vol 98 cc1067-8

Clause 15, page 18, line 40. The Commons have re-inserted subsection (2) of Clause 15 (which was formally omitted by the Lords, on Third Reading, as a Privilege Amendment) in the following form:

("(2) The Minister of Health may by order confer upon the Common Council of the City of London and upon councils of the metropolitan boroughs and (except in the City of London) upon the London County Council the like powers as are conferred by Section sixty-eight of the Public Health Act, 1925, upon authorities who are local authorities for the purposes of the Public Health Acts, 1875 to 1932; and any such order may incorporate with adaptations such of the provisions of this Act, of those Acts, and of the Local Government Act, 1933 (including provisions as to the compulsory acquisition of land), as may be necessary for the purpose of the application of the said section to London:

Provided that—

  1. (a) any such order shall provide that the powers thereby conferred shall not be exercised except after consultation with the Minister; and
  2. (b) no such order shall empower any such council as aforesaid to authorise the use of a parking place of any part of a street except as is provided by subsection (2) of Section sixteen of this Act:

Provided also that the powers conferred upon the London County Council shall not extend to any area on or under any street repairable by the inhabitants at large except with the consent of the highway authority concerned.")


My Lords, this is practically the clause as it left your Lordships' House. It incorporates some drafting Amendments. I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(The Earl of Plymouth.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
