Schedule 3, as amended, agreed to.

Schedule 4 [Repeals]:

The Earl of Lindsay moved Amendment No. 223:


Page 107, line 9, at end insert:
("1973 c.65. Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973. In Schedule 25, paragraph 41.
In Schedule 27, paragraphs 185 and 187.").

The noble Earl said: Amendments Nos. 223, 224 and 225 repeal provisions which are no longer appropriate in the light of this Bill. The reference to the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 reflects the amendments already referred to under Schedule 3, as does the reference to the Local Government and Housing Act 1989.

The final amendment to Schedule 4 corrects the references to the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994 and deletes parts of Schedule 3 to that Act which are now overtaken by this Bill. I beg to move.

On Question, amendment agreed to.

The Earl of Lindsay moved Amendments Nos. 224 and 225:


Page 109, line 25, at end insert:
("1989 c.42. Local Government and Housing Act 1989. In Schedule 11, paragraph 15.").
