HC Deb 08 July 1980 vol 988 c404
Mr. Fox

I beg to move amendment No. 150, in page 53, line 3, at end add— '(1A) In this Part of this Act—

  • "the commencement date" means the day appointed under subsection (1) above; and "year" means a period of 12 months beginning with 1st April.'.

This amendment defines the commencement date and year for the purposes of this part of the Bill. It is consequential on amendments No. 142 and 143. The latter introduce a distinction between capital receipts arising before the day when this part of the Bill comes into effect and those arising on or after that date. The definition of year for the purpose of this part of the Bill is to be the same as that laid down in clause 55(1) for the purposes of part VI on the RSG.

Amendment agreed to.

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Bernard Weatherill)
