Lords Amendment: In page 77, line 27, at end insert: (1A) Schedule (Functions with respect to land drainage, flood prevention, etc.) to this Act shall have effect with respect to the discharge in Greater London and the adjoining areas of functions with respect to land drainage and flood prevention and other functions under the enactments therein mentioned.

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.

This Amendment introduces the new Schedule A which goes into the Bill at line 7 of page 194. The Schedule deals with land drainage and flood prevention in that part of the proposed Greater London Council area which does not fall within the area of a river or catchment board. The Schedule was inserted towards the end of the proceedings in another place to meet undertakings which had been given earlier in this House and in another place.

Question put and agreed to.

Lords Amendment: In page 77, line 38, at end insert: (4) The confirmation and record of the rules of loan societies under the Loan Societies Act 1840 shall as respects any such society formed in Greater London be functions of the Greater London Council; and accordingly in relation to that Act sections 3 and 78 of the Local Government Act 1888 shall have effect as if Greater London were a county and the Greater London Council were the council of that county.

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.

This is an Amendment to ensure that the obligations under the Loan Societies Act, 1840, whereby those societies are required to deposit their rules and amendments with the councils of the county or county borough in which they are situated, is suitably adapted so that the Greater London Council becomes the approving authority.

Question put and agreed to.
