HC Deb 26 March 1942 vol 378 c2195

Lords Amendment in page 4, line 37, agreed to.

Lords Amendment: In page 5, line 13, at the end, insert: Provided that, if the court gives such a direction in a case where possession of any tenement comprised in the lease has not been taken or is not retained as aforesaid, the court may, if it thinks just, direct that the rent payable under the lease and, if the tenement is sub-let, the rent payable under the under-lease shall, notwithstanding the disclaimer, be payable, to such extent as may be directed, in respect of the period beginning with the material date and ending with the date on which the notice of disclaimer becomes effective, and the provisions of this Act relating to the apportionment of rent shall have effect subject to any such direction.

The Solicitor-General

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

This proviso maintains the payment of rent where certain tenants under a multiple lease are left in possession.

Question put, and agreed to.
