Clause 56—(Permitted Lights)

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 39. leave out lines 24 and 25.

In line 30, at end, insert:

"and the provisions of Part XV of this Act with respect to references upon notices served by inspectors shall apply to any such notice."—[Mr. Joynson-Hicks.]

I beg to move, in page 39, line 36, at the end, to insert:

Provided that no exemption from the said provisions of a part of a mine of coal shall be granted after the expiration of the period of four years beginning with the commencement of this Act or shall be granted or renewed before the expiration of that period otherwise than so as to expire not later than the expiration of that period.
This is a very important Amendment and also one which I think the Committee will welcome. It is to ensure that after four years from the beginning of the operation of the Bill there should be no mixed light mines left.

Amendment agreed to.
