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

The amendment makes a minor refinement to the original wording of clause 11. It exempts straightforward maintenance from the works licensing requirements. On reflection, we decided that it would be undesirable to require licensing of maintenance works, especially as failure to maintain waterside structures could affect safety of navigation.

Question put and agreed to.

Lords amendment: No. 3, in page 11, line 14, after "any" insert "reasonable".

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

This amendment also makes a minor refinement to the works licensing procedure prescribed by clause 11. It is a technical amendment.

Question put and agreed to.
