HC Deb 30 July 1951 vol 491 c1093

Lords Amendment: In page 38, line 10, leave out "expire by effluxion of time" and insert: come to an end—

  1. (a) by effluxion of time, or
  2. (b) by notice to quit given by the landlord so as to expire not less than four months after the giving of the notice,".

The Solicitor-General

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

This Amendment extends the landlord's right to put the tenant to election whether or not he is going to apply for a new tenancy, to a notice to quit case as well as to a case where a tenancy expires by effluxion of time. It will be recalled that during the Report stage I indicated that an Amendment on these lines would be introduced to cover the notice to quit case.

Question put, and agreed to.
