HC Deb 26 July 1935 vol 304 c2219

Lords Amendment: In page 64, line 28, leave out from "order" to "for" in line 33, and insert: for the determination of the lease or.


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

This Amendment slightly extends the powers conferred by the Bill, as originally drafted, on the county court by allowing the court to determine a lease in a case where not all the subject-matter of the lease is demolished, subject, of course, to such terms and conditions as the court thinks reasonable. The present restriction, which would prevent a lease being determined if there was one small part of the original property not demolished, seems unnecessarily hampering in the circumstances.
