§ Mr. Barnes
I beg to move, in page 6, line 39, at the end, to add:(3) Where in pursuance of subsection (1) of this section a gate has been removed (whether by, or in compliance with a requirement of, the appropriate authority) and the appropriate authority subsequently remove the cattle-grid, then, if within twelve months after the removal of the cattle-grid any person reinstals a gate in the exercise of a right of which the exercise was suspended while the cattle-grid was provided, the appropriate authority shall on demand repay the expenses reasonably incurred in reinstalling the gate.This Amendment is put down to meet the points that were made by the hon. and gallant Member for Devon, North 2282 (Brigadier Peto). It will entitle a person who rightfully replaces a gate after removal of a cattle-grid to recover the reasonable costs of doing so. The hon. and gallant Member for Devon, North, is unable to be in his place this afternoon, but he has intimated to me that this Amendment meets his point and he is quite satisfied with it.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
