Resolution reported,

That, for the purposes of any Act of the present Session to make provision for contributions

As the hon. Member for Bolton, West (Mr. Holt) quite rightly said, the applicants cannot this year show that their profits have been reduced, but as their costs have undoubtedly increased over the last few years and, as I have said, prices are now lower than they were in 1958, it seems not unreasonable that this protection should be given to our horticulturists.

Question put:

The House divided: Ayes 94, Noes 2.

by local authorities towards the repair and maintenance of buildings of historic or architectural interest, it is expedient to authorise the payment out of moneys provided by Parliament of any increase attributable to the provisions of that Act in the sums payable out of such moneys by way of Rate-deficiency Grant or Exchequer Equalisation Grant under the enactments relating to local government in England and Wales or in Scotland.

Resolution agreed to.
