HC Deb 01 July 1948 vol 452 c2412

Lords Amendment: In page 14, line 5, leave out "of an arbiter."

Mr. T. Fraser

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

The purpose of this Amendment is to make it clear that in cases where arbitration as to the rent of a holding is undertaken by the Land Court instead of by an arbiter, the date of any direction by the court that the rent of the holding should continue unchanged should rank as the commencement of the five-year period which must elapse before it is competent for the tenant to apply again for a revision of the rent.
