HL Deb 27 June 1940 vol 116 c715

Clause 10, page 10, line 3, leave out ("or the county borough")

Clause 10, page 10,line 4, at end, insert: ("(2) The Common Council of the City of London may act through a committee of the council, which may, if the council think fit, comprise persons who are not members of the council.")


My Lords, the first of these two Amendments is consequential. The second Amendment re-enacts for the City of London a provision made in Section 2 (1) of the War Charities Act, 1916, which is no longer necessary elsewhere in England and Wales in view of general provisions made in the Local Government Act, 1933, and the London Government Act, 1939. I beg to move that this House doth agree.

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

On Question, Motion agreed to.
