My Lords, I beg to move that this Bill be now read a third time.

Moved, That the Bill be now read 3a . —( The Earl of Listowel.)

On Question, Bill read 3a , with the Amendments.

Page 11, line 42, at end, insert—

"(4) The Board shall not under the powers of this section enter upon, take or use the lands delineated on the deposited plans and described in the deposited book of reference and therein numbered 1 to 21 in the district of Southend-on-Sea (formerly the county borough of Southend-on-Sea), 1 to 29 in the parish of Great Wakering and 1 in the parish of Foulness in the district of Rochford (formerly the rural district of Rochford) and 1 to 9 in the district of Castle Point (formerly the urban district of Canvey Island) all in the county of Essex."

The noble Earl said: My Lords, I beg to move the first Amendment set out on the Marshalled List. The proposed new subsection (4) is consequential on the withdrawal from the Bill of works numbers 1 to 3, and it expressly excludes all the lands originally required for works numbers 1 to 3 from the acquisition powers in the Bill. I beg to move.

On Question, Amendment agreed to.

Page 12, line 1, leave out (" Board's ").
Page 12, line 17, leave out (" Board's ").

The noble Earl said: My Lords, these two Amendments are consequential on an Amendment made in Committee in this House, changing the definition of the "Board's works "to" the works ". They were omitted when the original Amendment was made. With the leave of the House, I will move these two Amendments together. I beg to move.

On Question, Amendments agreed to.

Moved, That the Bill do now pass.— ( The Earl of Listowel.)

On Question, Bill passed, and returned to the Commons.
