HC Deb 02 November 1909 vol 12 c1791

It shall be competent to raise any action of removing in respect of, or for ejection from, any dwelling-house in the burgh police court, in which court the same procedure shall be competent as in the sheriff court in respect thereof: Provided that this Section shall only apply in burghs where at the passing of this Act the sheriff court is the only court having jurisdiction within the burgh in respect of such actions.

Lords Amendment: After "of" ["action of removing"] insert "summary."


I beg to move "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."


Will the word "summary" have any effect on the procedure as to ejection? As that procedure is fast enough, I wish to know whether the insertion of the word "summary" is necessary to the legal phrasing of the Clause, or whether it is intended to hasten ejection?


It is for the former purpose.

Lords Amendment: Leave out Clauses 12 to 17 and insert Clause A.
