Volume 389: debated on Thursday 6 May 1943

I beg to move, in page 11, line 3, to leave out Sub-section (1).

During the Second Reading Debate I gave an undertaking that, if it were possible, we should schedule to this Bill what has otherwise been proposed to be done by Order in Council. It proved possible, and accordingly the first Sub-section is now inoperative and unnecessary.

Amendment agreed to.

I beg to move, in page 12, line 25, to leave out "require," and to insert:

Provided that the Central Electricity Board shall not direct the supply of a smaller number of kilowatts in the said period or in any year or of a smaller number of units in any month than the number of kilowatts or,of units notified by the Board under paragraph (a) of this Sub-section in respect of that period, year or month."
This is a provision of a somewhat complicated nature to ensure that the appropriate price is paid by the Central Electricity Board for electricity which they take under Clause i6 from the new Board. The wording has been agreed.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 12, line 32, leave out "an authorised undertaker," and insert "authorised undertakers."—[ The Lord Advocate.]

Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
