I beg to move, in page 1, line 23, at the end, to insert:

"but nothing in this subsection shall be taken -as affecting so much of the said section fifty-seven as confers a right of appeal on a person aggrieved by the refusal of a local authority to grant a licence under that section."
This Amendment is to place beyond doubt the legal rights which are provided for in the principal Act of 1938, which provides for the right of appeal on the part of any person through the courts. The Amendment is to amplify that and to prevent any doubt arising as to the legal rights to which I have referred. It does not affect the position in Scotland, where the right of appeal lies to the Secretary of State and not, as in this case, to the courts.

Amendment agreed to.
