§ Mr. W. Hamilton
I beg to move, in page 5, line 12, to leave out "shall be transferred" and to insert "may be transferable".
§ Mr. G. Campbell
I cannot accept the Amendment. We feel that the licence is tied to the land. The period is only a year and, once the licence has been granted, it is only reasonable that it should be possible to transfer it to somebody coming in without having to go through all the processes of application again.
§ Amendment negatived.
§ Amendment agreed to.
Further Amendment made. In page 5, Une 20, leave out from "occupier" to end of line and insert:
consider the application as having been made by him in the first instance".—[Mr. Ross.]
§ Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
