HC Deb 02 June 1954 vol 528 c1337
Mr. J. Stuart

I beg to move, in page 13, line 43, at the end, to insert: the dwelling-house was not a dwelling-house to which section (Application of foregoing provisions of Part II of Act to certain classes of dwelling-house) of this Act applies and that at that date. This Amendment is consequential on the new Clause, which I moved on 17th May, applying a special procedure to certain houses before an increase can be claimed in respect of such houses. Under this Amendment, every normal notice of increase has to contain a declaration that the house is not one to which the new special procedure applies, and this provision will avoid any risk of the landlord making use of the normal procedure when he is not entitled to do so, because, if he does so, he would render himself liable to heavy penalties under the False Oaths (Scotland) Act, 1933.

Amendment agreed to.
