HC Deb 02 May 1985 vol 78 c504
The Solicitor-General for Scotland

I beg to move amendment No. 2, in page 2, line 14, at end insert 'or appears to him would have been so due and payable had the landlord renewed the lease'.

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Harold Walker)

With this it will be convenient to take Government amendments Nos. 3, 4, 5 and 6.

The Solicitor-General for Scotland

These are drafting amendments. They arise from the concern expressed in Committee by the hon. Member for Glasgow, Garscadden (Mr. Dewar). They relate to expenses and the power of the sheriff to distribute sums consigned into court. They are essentially formal.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendments made: No. 3, in page 2, line 21, after 'obligation', insert 'in or'.

No. 4, in line 25, leave out from 'so' to 'and' in line 26 and insert 'when he was obliged to'.

No. 5, in line 30, leave out subsection (6).

No. 6, in line 12, at end insert— '(10) The sheriff's power under subsection (9) above extends to ordering that any award of expenses of the application under this section be paid out of any sums consigned in court under subsection (2) above'.—[The Solicitor-General for Scotland.]
