35Amendment of certain enactments relating to licences

(1)The enactments mentioned in Part I of Schedule 3 to this Act (which among other things provide for the licensing or registration of agricultural gang masters, hawkers, passage brokers, emigrant runners, porters, guns, horses and pleasure boats for hire and canal boats, and for regulating activities to which the licences or registrations relate) shall cease to have effect.

(2)The enactments mentioned in the first column of Part II of Schedule 3 to this Act (which specify fees or maximum fees for licences, certificates or permits to which those enactments relate or for registration under those enactments) may be amended, by an order made by the Minister specified in relation to the enactment in question in the second column of the said Part II, so as to vary any sum specified by that enactment or so as to provide that any sum payable under that enactment shall cease to be so payable; and an order under this subsection may be limited to such cases as may be specified by the order and may make different provision for different cases specified by the order.

(3)The Postmaster General shall, before paying to the council of a county, county borough or London borough or to the Common Council the amount of the duties received by him, on or after the date when this subsection comes into force, in respect of licences for dogs or licences to deal in or for killing game issued in the county or borough or the City of London, as the case may be, deduct from that amount such sum as he considers is equal to the expenses incurred by him on work done in connection with the issue of the licences.

(4)Subsection (3) of this section shall come into force on the date when the first order under subsection (2) of this section increasing the amount of the duty in respect of any dog licence comes into force; and section 19(5) of the Post Office Act 1961 is hereby repealed on that date.
