§ The Earl of Avon
My Lords, with the leave of the House, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in Amendments Nos. 246 to 249 en bloc. Amendment No. 249, which corresponds with Amendment No. 235 for Planning Act orders, does two things in relation to Highway Act orders. It implements the recommendations of the Spicer Committee on the distribution of copies of confirmed public path orders with the notice of the confirmation of the order. In addition, it requires order-making authorities to inform all persons on whom notice of the making of an order was served of decisions not to confirm an order. I beg to move Amendments Nos. 246 to 249 en bloc.
§ Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said amendments.—(The Earl of Avon.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
