HL Deb 31 July 1968 vol 296 c378

[No. 14]

Clause 9, page 9, line 35, leave out from "make" to end of line 38 and insert "in relation to aircraft detained for non-payment of any charge payable by virtue of regulations under the said section 4, provision corresponding to any provision made by or under section (Detention and sale of aircraft for unpaid airport charges) of this Act."


My Lords, I beg to move that the House doth agree, with the Commons in their Amendment No. 14. The purpose of this provision is to make it possible to collect payment of navigation charges by the detention of aircraft, in the same way as provision was made in the previous clause for the collection of unpaid airport charges. There is some power already under other legislation which enables detention for unpaid navigation charges, but this makes the provision the same in the one case as in the other. I hope that this Amendment will be accepted.

Moved, That the House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment (No.14).—(Lord Beswick.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
