Lords amendment: No. 2, in page 3, line 38, leave out "a parish or community council".
The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Environment
(Mr. Christopher Chope)
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.When parish and community councils were added to the list of defined authorities in clause 1, it became necessary to delete the reference to them in clause 3 which implied that they were not defined authorities. This was only noticed after the Bill had left this House.
Question put and agreed to.
