HC Deb 04 June 1930 vol 239 c2343

Lords Amendment: In page 17, line 10, at the end, insert: (c) any premises which have been treated by the Authority as forming part of a railway hereditament occupied by the company, or as not forming part of any railway hereditament so occupied, ought to be treated differently by reason of some change which has, since the date on which the draft of the relevant part of the roll was settled, occurred in the occupation, or the character of the occupation, of those premises; or

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."—[Miss Lawrence.]


I think we ought to have some explanation of this Amendment.


Clause 11 provides machinery for altering the railway valuation during the quinquennial period on certain grounds such as some change which has occurred in the occupation or the character of the occupation of railway hereditatments. It is necessary to have some provision for dealing with parts of hereditaments which change their character, and this Clause is put in for that purpose.

Subsequent Lords Amendments to page 31, line 12, agreed to.
