Lords Amendment No. 2: In page 13, line 9, leave out "or closing order under section 15" and insert:
under section 15 or a closing order under section 15 or 18".
§ 6.20 p.m.
§ The Minister of State, Scottish Office (Dr. J. Dickson Mabon)
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.
The normal way of dealing with payments where a closing order has been made is under Clause 18 and Schedule 1, which is a transitional provision. This Amendment brings in a listed building or a building subject to any preservation order under the planning Acts. In other words, the purpose is to close a lacuna in the legislation.
§ Question put and agreed to.
