HC Deb 24 July 1969 vol 787 c2197

Lords Amendment No. 10: In page 61, line 6, at end insert:

"14 Geo. 6. c. 34. The Housing (Scotland) Act 1950. In section 125, the proviso."
Dr. Dickson Mabon

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

This Amendment closes a very small gap in the arrangements for controlling the rents of improved houses. It ensures that if a landlord improves a controlled house with grant but does not apply for a qualification certificate, which would enable the tenancy to be converted to rent regulation, he will be able to increase the rent by no more than 12½ per cent. of his expenditure.

Question put and agreed to.

Remaining Lords Amendment agreed to.
