HC Deb 02 May 1985 vol 78 c518
Mr. John MacKay

I beg to move amendment No. 35, in page 23, line 3, leave out 'subsection' and insert 'subsections'.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

With this we may take Government amendment No. 36.

Mr. MacKay

The amendments will ensure the continuation of the existing system whereby the formula for determining the sheep stock valuations at the end of a lease depends on the date when the lease was entered into. That means that both parties to the lease know what valuation system will apply at the end of it. The amendments are, therefore, supported by both sides of the agriculture industry.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment made: No. 36, in page 23, line 7, at end insert— '(1B) A variation made under subsection (1A) above shall not apply for the purposes of a valuation made in respect of a lease entered into before the valuation was made.'.—[Mr. John MacKay.]
