I beg to move, in page 93. line 28, at the end, to insert:

"or in taking any action under Section twenty-three of this Act."
An Order made under Clause 23 may require an alteration or removal in respect of an existing building or works, and the expenditure in so doing is recovered by compensation and is liable for grant under Clause 87. In the event of failure to comply, the local authority may carry out the alteration or removal, and the expenditure incurred should receive the same treatment, so far as the grant is concerned, as if it were compensation. In other words, this Amendment is intended to give local authorities the same treatment in respect of action which they take in carrying out works as if they were paying compensation.

Amendment agreed to.

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