Authority chief officer

Orders of the Day — Norfolk and Suffolk Broads Bill – in the House of Commons at 10:30 pm on 29th February 1988.

Alert me about debates like this

The Authority shall not—

  1. (a) a person to the office (by whatever name it is known) of chief officer of the Authority; or
  2. (b) determine, or vary, any of the terms and conditions on which he is employed by the Authority;
without first consulting the Countryside Commission."

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

Amendment 9 was tabled by the Government in response to the urging of the Countryside Commission. Each national park authority is required to appoint a national park officer and to consult the Commission before making that appointment or giving that officer any additional duties. The Commisson felt very strongly that in this respect, as in so many others, there was considerable merit in the Broads Authority following this precedent.

Question put and agreed to.

Lords amendment No. 10 agreed to.
