HL Deb 15 December 1949 vol 165 c1641

Clause 12, page 10, line 38, at end insert— ("(4) Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this section the confirming authority in any borough mentioned in Part III of the Third Schedule to this Act or in an order of the Lord Chancellor under section ten thereof shall be a joint committee of the borough justices and justices for the county in which the borough is situated (constituted in accordance with section four of the Licensing (Consolidation) Act, 1910), if and so long as t appears to the borough justices expedient having regard to the small number of the borough justices available to act as members of a confirming authority constituted as provided by subsection (2) of this section.")


My Lords, this Amendment provides for the constitution of the confirming authority in non-county boroughs where the number of justices available is small. I beg to move.

Moved, That this House do agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.— (The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
