My Lords, I understand that this amendment, like many others, would become superfluous, if, as I apprehend, the Government are to accede to amendments to be moved by the noble Lord, Lord Greaves, effectively to remove from the Bill the provisions for local referendums except in respect of council tax increases deemed to be excessive. In the circumstances that I apprehend are about to occur, there is not much point in my moving this amendment, and therefore I will not do so.

Amendment195ZAZMB not moved.

Amendment 195ZAZN

Moved by Lord Greaves

195ZAZN: Clause 42, leave out Clause 42
