Volume 645: debated on Monday 24 July 1961

Lords Amendment: In page 3, line 15, at end insert:

"and where consent is granted before that date subject to conditions, those conditions may, subject to subsection (6) of this section, take effect before that date."

9.33 p.m.

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.

It was always the intention that river boards should be able to grant consent for discharging into rivers before the appointed day. This was not exactly clear in Clause 1, and this Lords Amendment is for the avoidance of doubt.

Question put and agreed to.
