HC Deb 04 February 1941 vol 368 cc882-3

The following Amendment stood upon the Order Paper in the name of Mr. WOODBURN: In page 15, line 13, at the end, to add: (2) In Scotland, any tenant, not being the actual proprietor, who fails to be entered in the valuation roll as proprietor, shall be allowed to deduct from any rent he pays to the actual landlord such proportion of the contribution as the rent which he pays to such landlord bears to the total contributory value of the property.

The Chairman

This Amendment deals with a subject which should be raised at a later stage.

Mr. Woodburn

On a point of Order. I take it that the passing of this Clause does not deprive hon. Members of the right of raising the matter at a later stage on the Fifth Schedule as it affects Scotland?

The Chairman

I do not see how a question which affects the application to Scotland can be prejudiced by passing this Clause. The hon. Member should raise that on the Scottish application Clause which is the proper time for dealing with Scottish questions.

Clause ordered to stand part of the Bill.
