§ Report received.
§ Clause 336 [Interpretation]:
The Lord Chancellor moved the following Amendment:
Page 227, line 18, leave out from ("means") to end of line 24 and insert—
(" (a) a charging authority, a precepting authority (except the Receiver for the Metropolitan Police District), a combined police authority or a combined fire authority, as those expressions are defined in section 144 of the Local Government Finance Act 1988;
(b) a levying body within the meaning of section 74 of that Act; and
(c) a body as regards which section 75 of that Act applies; and includes any joint board or joint committee if all the constituent authorities are local authorities within paragraph (a), (b) or (c); ").
§ The noble and learned Lord said: My Lords, in moving this amendment, I should like to point out that the Marshalled List contains a misprint. The correct position of the amendment is at page 227.
§ This amendment gives effect in the Bill to amendments made to Section 290 (1) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1971 by the Local Government Finance (Repeals, Savings and Consequential Amendments) Order 1990. The amendments made by the order are consequential upon the Local Government Finance Act 1988 and the Local Government and Housing Act 1989 and came into force on the 1st April 1990. I beg to move.
§ On Question, amendment agreed to.
