I beg to move, in page 22, line 14, at the end, to insert:

"Provided that the court or committee shall not make a declaration under this subsection unless they are satisfied that every owner, lessee and occupier of any land which would be affected by the declaration has had an opportunity of appearing before them."
In Clause 31 there is provision for the courts or committee of quarter sessions to make a declaration affecting owners of land. It was pointed out by the hon. and learned Member for Exeter (Mr. Maude) that this declaration might affect the rights of owners of land who have no opportunity of appearing before the court or committee. This Amendment is designed to meet that.

Amendment agreed to.
