First Schedule—(Amendments Of The Act Of 1955)

Volume 643: debated on Wednesday 5 July 1961

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

I beg to move, in page 23, line 35, after "croft)", to insert:

  • (a) in paragraph (c) of subsection (1) for the word "is" there shall be substituted the words "was before the commencement of the Crofters (Scotland) Act, 1961"; and
  • (b).
  • This is a drafting Amendment. Paragraph (c) of the subsection (1) which is referred to provides that a holding which is constituted a croft by rules under Section 4 of the 1955 Act shall be a croft. The use of the word "is" tends to leave it doubtful whether holdings which were registered under Section 4 before the Bill comes into operation would remain crofts thereafter. This Amendment merely resolves that doubt.

    Amendment agreed to.

    Further Amendments made: In page 24, line 26, leave out "subsections" and insert "subsection".

    In page 24, leave out lines 35 to 37.

    In page 25, line 37, at end insert:

    17. In section thirty-four (which relates to the determination of disputes), in subsection (1) for the words "are required by or" there shall be substituted the words, "have jurisdiction".

    In line 44, at end insert:

    18. In section thirty-eight (which provides amongst other things for the modification of enactments in relation to the crofting counties), in subsection (2) after the word "than" there shall be inserted the words "section twenty-five of the Act of 1911 and".—[Mr. Maclay.]
