I beg to move amendment No. 19, in page 4, line 34, leave out 'under' and insert—

'(in this Part of this Act referred to as a "maintenance agreement") under—
  • (i) section 5(3)(c) of the London Government Act 1963 (agreements between Greater London Council and other London authorities for the carrying out of works of maintenance by one party in connection with land or buildings for the maintenance of which another party is responsible), or
  • (ii)'.
  • With this we may take Government amendments Nos. 20 and 21.

    These are technical amendments. They are needed to clarify uncertainties which were pointed out in Committee. We promised to bring forward amendments as necessary. They merely ensure that, where authorities have a number of powers available to them under which they may do work for each other, the treatment of such work under this part of the Bill is consistent.

    Amendment agreed to.

    Amendments made: No. 20, in page 4, line 39, leave out from 'section' to 'or' in line 40.

    No. 21, in page 4, line 40, at end add—

    ' (aa) an agreement under section 18(4) of the London Government Act 1963 (agreements between Greater London Council and other London authorities with regard to metropolitan roads); or'.

    No. 22, in page 5, line 13, leave out 'are delegated to' and insert—

    'fall to be discharged by'.

    No. 23, in page 5, line 14, leave out 'delegated'.—[ Mr. King.]
