§ Mr. Allan Stewart
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.
The new clause is necessary to allow tenants who purchase their council houses under the right-to-buy provisions of the 1980 Act to take out additional security on their home for loans for house improvement without seeking their landlord's consent, as is the case in England and Wales.
§ Question put and agreed to.
