HC Deb 26 July 1935 vol 304 cc2199-200

" . Where the minister has undertaken to make in respect of any houses under the management of a housing association contributions under more than one enactment and the association are required to observe in the management of the houses varying special conditions or terms imposed by those enactments, the Minister may, on the application of the association and after consultation with any local authority who are under obligation to make grants or contributions in respect of any of the houses, make a scheme specifying, as conditions to be observed in the management of all the houses in substitution for the conditions or terms imposed as aforesaid, such conditions as he thinks fit and in specifying the conditions to be so observed the Minister shall have regard to the provisions of Part IV of this Act with respect to the conditions which a local authority are required to observe in relation to their houses."


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

This new Clause will enable housing associations, if they so desire, to obtain the advantages of consolidation of subsidies and unification of rent conditions which the Bill confers on local authorities. It is not, however, compulsory as in the case of local authorities.

Subsequent Lords Amendment in page 26, line 36, agreed to.
