I mentioned on clause 5 that a remedial notice could last for ever—or at least for as long as the hedge remains on the site. It is important, therefore, that the notice is not set in stone, for all time. For that reason, clause 6 provides that a local authority can withdraw a remedial notice or waive or relax its requirements. Unless the Committee would like me to speak for longer, I commend the clause on that basis.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 6 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
