HC Deb 01 July 1948 vol 452 c2441

Lords Amendment: In page 70, line 16, leave out from beginning to "deemed" and insert: "Within one month of notice of a proposal being given or being."

Mr. T. Fraser

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

Paragraph 4 of the Second Schedule of the Bill provides that the landlord or the tenant may require that any proposal by the Secretary of State to refuse or to grant a certificate of bad husbandry shall be referred to the Land Court. It was suggested earlier in our discussions in this place and certainly in the discussions in another place that a time limit ought to be fixed. The Amendment fixes a time limit of one month within which such a requirement must be met.

Amendment agreed to.
