HL Deb 19 June 1958 vol 209 cc1182-3

6.31 p.m.

Order of the Day for the Third Reading read.


My Lords, in moving that this Bill be read a third time I beg your Lordships' indulgence while I give an assurance to my noble friend Lord Dundee, who is not in his place, and to other Scottish Lords—who have now disappeared from their places—on the point which my noble friend Lord Dundee raised with regard to ownership of land in Scotland. The assurance is that, in regard to Scotland, in Clause 25 of this Land Powers (Defence) Bill the procedure is followed in exactly the same way as under Section 7 of the Acquisition of Land (Scotland) Act, 1947, and Section 63 of the Civil Aviation Act, 1949. With that assurance, I beg to move that this Bill be now read a third time.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 3a.—(Earl Bathurst.)

On Question, Bill read 3a, and passed.
