I beg to move, in page 42, line II, to leave out "and of every county borough council."

Hon. Members will recall that in Committee upstairs there was a good deal of discussion on the wisdom of allowing every county borough council to become a smallholding authority. This Amendment simply leads up to a new Clause which is on the Order Paper. I do not think I need dwell upon this point at the moment, since perhaps I can give a more prolonged explanation when we come to the new Clause itself.

Amendment agreed to.

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