HC Deb 01 July 1948 vol 452 cc2412-3

Lords Amendment: In page 18, line 48, after "only" insert: that any new term has been added to the lease or.

Mr. T. Fraser

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

This Amendment is designed to avoid any possible doubt as to the scope of the Clause. The Clause provides that the lease of a holding shall not be deemed to have been brought to an end by reason only that any of its terms have been varied or reduced in pursuance of any provision of Part I of the Bill. During the Report stage in this House doubt was expressed whether the Clause covered the case where a new term is added to the lease by an arbiter in accordance with the provisions of Clause 14. This doubt is removed by the Amendment.
