With this it will be convenient to discuss Lords amendment No. 13.

These two amendments rectify minor imperfections in the way in which the Broads Authority had been written into other legislation, as the Bill's provisions were orginally drafted. In both cases the singular was wrongly used where the plural was needed.

Question put and agreed to.
Lords amendment: No. 12, in page 29, line 8, after "II" insert and section 45(2) and (3)".

This is a technical amendment that rectifies a small oversight. In applying to the new authority the provisions of the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979, we originally overlooked the need to confer on it a power contained in part III of the Act, which will enable the authority to incur expenditure on archaeological investigations.

Question put and agreed to.

Lords amendments Nos. 13, 14, 15, 16, 16A and 17 agreed to.
