HC Deb 24 May 1939 vol 347 c2441

The owner of any dwellinghouse may execute any works for the purpose of providing shelter of an approved type in the dwellinghouse or the curtilage thereof notwithstanding any limitation of his interest in the dwellinghouse or any agreement or restrictive covenant to the contrary.—[Mr. Ede.]

Brought up, and read the First time.

Mr. Ede

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

Mr. Elliot

We are prepared to accept this proposal in principle and to bring up a new Clause on the Report stage to deal with it. That will probably solve the present difficulties and perhaps the hon. Member will not find it necessary to press the new Clause which he has now formally moved.

Mr. Ede

I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Clause.

Motion and Clause, by leave, withdrawn.
