Re-Allocation Of Functions Relating To The Countryside

Amendment made:

No. 97, in page 39, line 33, leave out `35A.'.

I beg to move amendment No. 124, in page 39, leave out lines 35 to 37 and insert—

'49.All local and planning authorities Islands and district authorities. councils.
50.All local and planning authorities.Islands and district councils, and general and district planning authorities.'.

With this it will be convenient to take Government amendments Nos. 125, 126, 104 and 105.

Amendments Nos. 124, 125 and 126 remove an anomaly in the Bill by putting camp sites on all fours with caravan sites, so making the provision of both types of site the functions of islands and district councils. The purpose of the amendments is straightforward.

Amendment No. 104 meets the pledge given to my hon. Friend the Member for Bute and North Ayrshire (Mr. Corrie) in Committee in relation to winter quartering of travelling showmen.

Amendment No. 105 is a purely drafting amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendments made: No. 98, in page 41, line 44, leave out paragraph 16

No. 125, in page 42, line 9, leave out "and caravan".

No. 126, in page 42, line 12, leave out from "means" to end of line 13 and insert
