HC Deb 26 July 1935 vol 304 cc2202-3

Lords Amendment: In page 51, line 36, after the fiifst "arrangement", insert "in relation to other buildings".

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

In both Houses criticism of this clause was put forward on the ground that there might be various interpretations of the expression "bad arrangement". It might be held to cover the internal bad arrangement of a house as well as the bad arrangement of the house in relation to other buildings. On further consideration we decided to remove any possible doubt as to the intention of the clause, about which I do not think there is any difference of opinion. The present Amendment makes it clear that "bad arrangement" in this clause refers only to the bad condition of the house in relation to other houses.


A question of privilege arises on this Amendment which may result in additional compensation in some cases.

Question put, and agreed to. [Special Entry.]

Subsequent Lords Amendment to page 52, line 11, agreed to.

Lords Amendment: In page 52, line 26, at the end, insert:
