Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: New Clause. — (Amendment of Definition of "communication Pipe," &C.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: If the hon. Gentleman feels that it is no part of his duty to read the principal Act on which this Bill is based——

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: New Clause. — (Amendment of Definition of "communication Pipe," &C.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: —then, of course, we could spend the whole day and night trying to instruct the hon. Gentleman in the knowledge which he ought to possess before he criticises the Government in respect of this Bill.

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: New Clause. — (Amendment of Definition of "communication Pipe," &C.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: For the benefit of the hon. Gentleman, may I point out that the definition of "street" includes any highway, road, lane, footway, square, court, alley or passage, whether a thoroughfare or not. I think that is sufficiently comprehensive to cover even the lane along which the fairies run at the end of the hon. Member's garden.

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: New Clause. — (Amendment of Definition of "communication Pipe," &C.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I should think that if a vennel is an alley or a passage, it would be included.

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 2. — (Provision as to Liability for Domestic Water Rate.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: May I deal with the various points which have been raised? Referring first to paragraph (a), I would inform the hon. Member for Coatbridge (Mrs. Mann) that the supply of water must be within the premises in which the house is comprised so that the pump in the street would not come within the ambit of this paragraph and people drawing water from that pump would not be chargeable with the...

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 4. — (Levy of Domestic Water Rate on Business and Commercial Premises.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: My hon. Friend the Member for North Edinburgh (Mr. Willis) and the hon. and gallant Member for West Edinburgh (Lieut.-Commander Hutchison) have raised individual points. Let me direct their attention to the fact that there is discretionary power vested in the local authority to include in this category any other types of premises they think fit. The particular types of premises to which...

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 4. — (Levy of Domestic Water Rate on Business and Commercial Premises.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: If my hon. Friend will look at the proviso to Clause 4 (1) he will see that, in relation to any of these premises, the local authority has the power to down grade the fraction from a half to a quarter; so we are leaving it entirely to the discretion of the local authority. Let us return to the question of the very much overworked word "premise." Let me point out to the hon. and gallant Member...

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 4. — (Levy of Domestic Water Rate on Business and Commercial Premises.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: With your permission, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, I would say that I think that the hon. Member for Dumfries (Mr. N. Macpherson) was confusing the situation in respect of the domestic water rate and the trade water rate. This Clause deals only with the domestic water rate. The agreements to which he was referring were, in my opinion, agreements in respect of trade water. Therefore, that particular...

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 4. — (Levy of Domestic Water Rate on Business and Commercial Premises.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: The fact remains, of course, that the overriding provisions of the Clause cover factories. Therefore, I do not see where the difficulty arises so far as the hon. Gentleman's argument is concerned if he distinguishes between the supply of domestic water and the supply of trade water. The hon. and gallant Member for Central Glasgow (Colonel Hutchison) raised the question of the right of...

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 4. — (Levy of Domestic Water Rate on Business and Commercial Premises.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: The trade water supply is provided for in the principal Act of 1946 under, I think, Section 11, whereby provision is made that a local water authority shall give a supply of water on reasonable terms and conditions for purposes other than domestic purposes to the owner or occupier of any premises within the limit of supply who requires them to give that supply to the premises, provided that...

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 12. — (Provisions Supplementary to Sections 10 and 11.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 9, line 12, at the end, to insert: (7) The provisions of Subsection (2) of Section nine of this Act (which subsection provides for the making of regulations with respect to the payment of compensation for loss of office or diminution of emoluments in the case of officers or servants employed for the purposes of special water supply districts) shall apply in relation to...

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 15. — (Provisions as to Valuation Roll.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 10, line 32, at the end, to insert: (7) For the purpose of enabling the assessor to effect any apportionment required to be effected by him under this section the local water authority shall furnish him with such information as to the premises in their district supplied with water and as to such other matters as he may reasonably require for that purpose. The object of...

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 23. — (Power to Survey and Search for Water on Land Proposed to Be Purchased.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I was going to say that the hon. Member for South Edinburgh (Sir W. Darling) had been a little precipitate. I am sorry and surprised to see the hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for Pollock (Commander Galbraith) following his bad example, because if hon. Members will look at the Clause as a whole they will see that prior to this taking place 14 days' notice must be given to the occupier...

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 23. — (Power to Survey and Search for Water on Land Proposed to Be Purchased.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: There is 14 days' notice given that such a survey is likely to occur. The present notice is one of 24 hours that the survey of which intimation has previously been given will take place on a particular day and at a particular time. My right hon. Friend pointed out that there was some doubt whether or not this point was already provided for in the principal Act. To remove that doubt we are...

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 24. — (Charges for Water Supplied by Meter.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 16, line 37, to leave out from "(1)," to "local," and to insert "Every." A point raised in Committee by my hon. Friend the Member for Stirling and Falkirk Burghs (Mr. M. MacPherson) was whether the original provisions of Clause 24 affected the provisions of Section 11 of the principal Act. By this Amendment and the two subsequent Amendments we propose to recast Clause...

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 24. — (Charges for Water Supplied by Meter.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: The Lord Advocate indicated assent.

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 24. — (Charges for Water Supplied by Meter.) (7 Feb 1949)

Orders of the Day — Water (Scotland) Bill: Clause 26. — (Termination of Right to Supply of Water on Special Terms.) (7 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 18, line 27, at the end, to insert: (7) An obligation to furnish a supply of water or to grant a wayleave for pipes or to give any other benefit or advantage to a local water authority entered into in consideration of an obligation to which this Section applies shall not be deemed to be terminated by reason only of the termination under this Section of the last...

Orders of the Day — Juries Bill: Clause 24. — (Fee Payable by Party Applying for Jury Trial in Civil Cause.) (14 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 12, line 27, to leave out "dismiss the action," and to insert "recall the order." This is a minor Amendment to rectify something which was rather drastic in the Clause as originally framed. The Clause provided that if the applicant for jury trial failed to pay the fee prescribed by the Act of Sederunt, the court might dismiss the action. We felt that was too drastic...

Orders of the Day — Landlord and Tenant (Rent Control) Bill: Clause 13. — (Application to Scotland.) (16 Feb 1949)

Mr John Wheatley: I beg to move, in page 10, line 29, to leave out "relevant part of the letting," and to insert "rental equivalent." This, and the five following Amendments, are designed to bring Clause 13 into line with Clause 2, as amended. Hon. Members will remember that as a result of the Amendments to Clause 2, provision is made to ensure that the rental equivalent will be deducted when there is a new...
