Orders of the Day — Clause 24. — (Amendment of Provisions of Act of 1950 Relating to Improvement Grants.) (18 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I must answer the hon. Lady. I am quite unashamed— [Interruption.]I am prepared to follow England if it is wise to do so. The hon. Lady, presumably, would not do so even if it were the wise thing. Again, she said that we are the lackeys of the landlords and asked about the local authorities, whose ratepayers are involved. I will read two brief sentences from a letter dated 22nd February,...

Orders of the Day — Clause 24. — (Amendment of Provisions of Act of 1950 Relating to Improvement Grants.) (18 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I beg to move, in page 14. line 27, after "thereof" to insert: or by a member of the family of such a person". This Amendment extends to a member of the family of anyone acquiring interest in property on the death of the applicant the same rights as are given under sub-paragraph (iii) to a member of the family who acquires an interest

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Obligation of Lessors Receiving Standard Grants and Application to Tied Dwellings (England and Wales).) (18 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I do not agree with the hon. Member that nothing that we have done has done other than put money into the pockets of the landlords. He will bear in mind the fact that we have enabled landlords to repair their houses for the first time for far too long. I will try briefly to give the Scottish angle on this new Clause—I am glad of the opportunity to say something about it—and I will also...

Orders of the Day — Second Schedule. — (Enactments Repealed.) (18 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I beg to move, in page 21, line 11, at the end to insert: and in subsection (4), the words from 'shall not be made' to 'such an advance' and the words from 'In the case' to the end of the subsection. This is consequential on the removal of the £5,000 ceiling from the local authority advances.

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 16. — (Inspection and Tests.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I beg to move, in page 19, line 7, to leave out from "building" to the end of line 8 and to insert: Provided that the buildings authority, on application made to them, may if they think fit direct that the expense of carrying out any such test as aforesaid, or such part of that expense as may be specified in the direction, shall be met by the local authority. Under the Bill as it stands the...

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 16. — (Inspection and Tests.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: The reason why the Amendment was not put forward in Committee was that the local authorities themselves had second thoughts about it. As we are trying to make the best job we can of the Bill, in a completely non- party spirit, I think that we are entitled to bring forward at any time any Amendment which we think will improve the Bill. As to the question of the master of works and the...

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 16. — (Inspection and Tests.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I will try to answer, if I can remember them, all the points that have been raised. This is only a drafting Amendment. [HoN. MEMBERS: "0h."] It does not alter the sense or the intention of the Bill. The Amendment is made at the request of the county councils, to make the intention a little clearer. I would like to correct one impression I gave before, when I said that this was "second...

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 16. — (Inspection and Tests.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: That was one point I had forgotten. The words do not refer to the direction on top of page 19 of the Bill, but to the direction on the previous line of the Amendment.

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 16. — (Inspection and Tests.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: The hon. Member may have his own views on that matter, but that is not the effect of the Amendment. It has, as I explained, merely a drafting effect. The Bill will have exactly the same effect as before.

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 16. — (Inspection and Tests.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: Under the direction, yes. I am advised that the wording is correct and that we should not put down an Amendment for the Report stage, as suggested.

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Buildings Authorities.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I beg to move, in page 1, line 15, after "burgh", to insert: and for any burgh constituted after the commencement of this Act". This Amendment meets a point raised by the hon. Member for Hamilton (Mr. T. Fraser), who, I am sorry to say, is not able to be here, through indisposition. As drafted, the Bill does not provide that a new burgh—and a new burgh would have a dean of guild court under...

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Buildings Authorities.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: There is a little misunderstanding. There is no question of doing anything about the rights of the burgh to have a dean of guild court. Under Part XVIII of the Local Government (Scotland) Act, 1947, any area becoming a burgh automatically has a dean of guild court. I remember the reason for the Amendment quite well, because we were discussing the position of the new towns when they became...

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Buildings Authorities.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: Its functions will be the same as in virtually every other burgh in Scotland, bar seven. They will be as laid down in the 1947 Act.

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Buildings Authorities.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: Would it be convenient, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, to discuss this Amendment with several later Amendments?

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 1. — (Constitution of Buildings Authorities.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: Yes, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. They are, in page 25, line 38, at the beginning to insert: Subject to the next following subsection". In page 26, line 2, to leave out: before the commencement of this Act". In line 26, after "twenty-two" to insert "and"; in line 26, to leave out "and twenty-eight"; and in page 27, line 1, to leave out Schedule 1.

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 6. — (Application of Building Standards Regulations and Building Operations Regulations to Construction or Demolition, and to Change of Use, of Buildings.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I beg to move, in page 6, to leave out lines 35 to 40 and to insert: any application for a warrant shall state the period of intended life of the building (being not greater than that specified in the said provisions of the building standards regulations) and, without prejudice to the last foregoing subsection and subject to the next following subsection, the warrant shall be subject to the...

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 6. — (Application of Building Standards Regulations and Building Operations Regulations to Construction or Demolition, and to Change of Use, of Buildings.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I beg to move, in line 4, at the end to insert: (6) A warrant for the demolition of a building shall be subject to the condition that the demolition shall be completed within such period from the commencement of the operations for the demolition as may be specified in the warrant. This Amendment meets the promise I made to the hon. Member for Hamilton (Mr. T. Fraser). In the cases to which...

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 6. — (Application of Building Standards Regulations and Building Operations Regulations to Construction or Demolition, and to Change of Use, of Buildings.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: Under the definition of building, people can include part of a building and an owner asking for a warrant for partial demolition would, I have no doubt, be able to satisfy the building authority that that was in order. He would receive approval to demolish the part he wished to demolish, but he would have to do so within the time specified by the local authority.

Orders of the Day — Building (Scotland) Bill: Clause 6. — (Application of Building Standards Regulations and Building Operations Regulations to Construction or Demolition, and to Change of Use, of Buildings.) (11 Feb 1959)

Mr Jack Browne: I speak again by leave of the House. I should like to disabuse the mind of the hon. Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. Ross). We put down the Amendment to meet the point made by the hon. Member for Dunbartonshire, East (Mr. Bence) and others that, where danger is caused in cities when various buildings are half demolished and litter is left on the road, the period allowed for the completion of the...
