I beg to move, in page 5, line 11, at the end, to insert:

"and where a direction under the proviso to subsection (2) of this section is for the time being in force as respects any authority, there shall be a joint advisory committee established as aforesaid for the purpose of advising that authority and all other local planning authorities whose areas include land in the Park as to the exercise of their said functions as respects the Park, or for that purpose and any other purposes for which such a committee can be so established."
This Amendment is moved in pursuance of a promise which I made on the Committee stage to ensure that there would either be a joint planning board where there were a number of authorities within the area of a national park, or a joint advisory committee. The wording of the Clause as it stood made it possible, although it was never the intention, that where there was not a joint board there would be no advisory committee.

Amendment agreed to.

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