HC Deb 18 December 1916 vol 88 cc1243-4

Where a building destroyed or damaged as aforesaid is held under a lease for a term of years of which the residue unexpired on the twenty-fourth day of April, nineteen hundred and sixteen, was more than five and less than thirty-one years, Section five of the Town Tenants (Ireland) Act, 1906 (which relates to compensation for unreasonable disturbance), shall apply to the building when rebuilt or restored in like manner as it applies to a building held under a lease made after the passing of that Act for a term of less than thirty-one years.—[Mr. Field.]

Clause brought up, and read the first time.


I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a second time."


I beg to second the Motion.

10.0 P.M.


I told the hon. Member, when he moved the previous Clause dealing with this subject, that this was a Clause which my advisers thought, under the circumstances, might be accepted. It makes some extension of the existing provisions in respect of damage to interests of the nature of the interests which are affected by this calamity in Dublin, and I will not resist the Second Reading.

Question put, and agreed to.

Clause ordered to be added to the Bill.
