Clause 40—(Interpretation Of Part V)

Volume 466: debated on Monday 27 June 1949

I beg to move, in page 30, line 6, to leave out, "or the Duchy of Lancaster."

This Amendment is a correction of a minor flaw in the provisions of the Clause, which includes among the Crown property the property of the Duchy of Lancaster. As a matter of fact, however, the Duchy of Lancaster has paid Land Tax, and has always redeemed it when required, and should not have been included. The Chancellor of the Duchy has been consulted upon it and he agrees to the omission of these words and, therefore, the inclusion of the Duchy of Lancaster as an ordinary citizen who will pay the redemption money.

Amendment agreed to.

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

Clauses 41 to 44 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
