HL Deb 23 October 1968 vol 296 c1513

[No. 82]

Clause 104, page 139, line 34, at end insert— () Subject to the provisions of this Act

  1. (a) it shall be lawful for all persons holding a valid licence from the Board for which the prescribed fee has been paid to use the commercial waterways and the cruising waterways with any ship or boat in the manner and for the purposes prescribed in the licence:
  2. (b) the Board shall not unreasonably refuse the issue of a licence for the use of any commercial or cruising waterway by any person;
  3. (c) the term licence shall mean and include any authorisation issued by the Board for the movement of any vessel in return for payment."

The Commons disagreed to this Amendment for the following Reason:

[No. 83]

Because part of it is unnecessary and the remainder creates a duty of uncertain extent which conflicts with section 43 of the Transport Act 1962.
