§ APPLICATION OF ACT TO ISLES OF SCILLY
§ Mr. Speed
I beg to move Amendment No. 1159, in page 185, line 28, leave out from beginning to 'providing' in line 30, and insert:This is a most important Amendment. Clause 253 provides for the general application of the Bill to the Isles of Scilly, which are not a part of Cornwall and are expressly excluded from the general reorganisation provisions by Clause 1.
- '(1) There shall continue to be a council for the Isles of Scilly to be known as the Council of the Isles of Scilly.
- (2) The Secretary of State may make an order providing for the constitution of the Council of the Isles of Scilly and otherwise for regulating the application of this Act to the Isles of Scilly and may on the application of the Council make an order'.
1087 The Amendment inserts a new subsection (1) making clear that the Council of the Isles of Stilly is to continue in existence.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Amendment made: No. 1160, in page 186, line 1, leave out from beginning to 'any' in line 2.—[Mr. Speed.]
