Canterbury City Council Bill — Clause 2 — Removal of Definitions — 6 Feb 2013 at 18:00

George Osborne MP, Tatton did not vote.

The majority of MPs voted to remove definitions for the terms: equipment; perishable item; the police; proper officer and receptacle from the Canterbury City Council Bill.

The motion approved in this vote was:

  • That this House agrees with Lords amendment C6.

The C designates the amendment as relating to the Canterbury City Council Bill[2].

Lords amendment 6[3] states

  • Page 2, leave out lines 17 to 27

The effect of this would have been to remove the following definitions from the Bill:

  • equipment means equipment used for the purposes of street trading;
  • perishable item means an item which is of a perishable nature;
  • the police means the Kent police force;
  • proper officer has the same meaning as in section 270(3) of the Local Government Act 1972 (c. 70)
  • receptacle includes– (a) any vehicle, trailer or barrow; and (b) any basket, bag, box, vessel, stall, stand, easel, board, tray or other thing, which is used (whether or not constructed or adapted for such use) as a container for or for the display of any article

The aim of the Canterbury City Council Bill was to give Canterbury City Council better control of street trading and touting in the city of Canterbury.

The definitions removed in this vote relate to regulatory powers which were removed from the Bill during is passage through Parliament.
