I beg to move, in page 17, line 32, after "jurisdiction," to insert: on any one or more of the following grounds, that is to say. This is to correct a drafting omission in the Clause dealing with the recovery of maintenance works. It is to ensure that it is understood that there is a right of appeal on any one of the four grounds listed in the subsection.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 18, line 12, after "make," insert: such one or more of the following orders as may appear to the court to be appropriate, having regard to the grounds of the complaint, that is to say."—[Mr. Blenkinsop.]

I beg to move, in page 18, line 35, to leave out "to be carried out," and to insert: for which provision is made by the scheme. What we are leaving out is not quite appropriate in this place, because the scheme is not a works scheme but a scheme to meet the cost of works.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 18, line 47, at end, insert: and the reference in subsection (1) of section eight of this Act to subsection (3) of that section shall be construed accordingly."—[Mr. Blenkinsop.]
