HC Deb 26 June 1974 vol 875 cc1688-9
Mr. Millan

I beg to move Amendment No. 28, in page 49, line 42 leave out "5 and 6" and insert "2 and 3"

This amendment, too, is a purely drafting amendment, but I hope that it gives me the opportunity to say again that I have welcomed during the Report as well as the Committee stage the constructive way in which hon. Members on both sides of the House have approached the Bill. I think that the net result is a rather better Bill.

Mr. Teddy Taylor

Throughout the Bill's progress, we have been grateful to the Government for the way in which they have responded to our amendments. It is significant that no fewer than six significant amendments have been accepted which will help tenants in housing action areas and improve their conditions. Because of our printing difficulties, the Bill is certainly now bigger. We also think that it is a better Bill.

Amendment agreed to

Motion made, and Question, That the Bill be now read the Third time, put forthwith pursuant to Standing Order No. 56 (Third Reading), and agreed to.

Bill accordingly read the Third time and passed.
