Volume 529: debated on Thursday 1 July 1954

The text on this page has been created from Hansard archive content, it may contain typographical errors.

Amendments made: In page 63, line 25, to leave out "so far as is reasonably practicable."

In line 36, leave out paragraph ( a), and insert:

(a) that the entry of the dust into the air or its accumulation in any place in circumstances in which its accumulation in that place might be harmful is minimised by means of steps in that behalf taken as near as possible to the point of origin of the dust.—[Mr. Joynson-Hicks.]

I beg to move, in page 64, line 3, at the end, to insert:

(3) Regulations may impose upon managers of quarries such requirements with respect to the use thereat of prescribed apparatus and the taking thereat of prescribed steps as it may appear to the Minister requisite or expedient to impose for the purpose of attaining any of the objects mentioned in the foregoing provisions of this section; and regulations having effect by virtue of this subsection may provide either that compliance therewith by a manager of a quarry is to be taken, either without qualification or to a prescribed extent, as compliance with all or any of the requirements of the said provisions or that compliance with the regulations by a manager of a quarry is not necessarily to be taken as compliance with any of the said requirements.
The Amendment brings the phraseology of the provisions relating to dust suppression in quarries into line with those relating to mines.

Amendment agreed to.
