London Local Authorities Bill [HL]

Volume 736: debated on Wednesday 21 March 2012

Commons Amendments


Moved by

My Lords, I do not intend to move these amendments individually as many of them deal with rather minor matters. There are, however, a number of amendments to the Bill which it may be helpful to draw to the House’s attention.

First, the Select Committee in another place deleted in its entirety the provision that would have required food hygiene information to be displayed in food premises. Secondly, the Select Committee also removed the provisions relating to the management of houses in multiple occupation, and provisions containing powers of entry into such houses. Thirdly, provisions relating to entertainment involving nudity were removed from the Bill at the request of the promoters following a change in national legislation. The promoters also agreed on Report to remove from the Bill a new offence of obstruction of an authorised officer.

The remainder of the amendments are either minor or consequential on the changes that I have mentioned. I hope that the House will agree to the amendments made in another place. I beg to move.

Motion agreed.
