Lords amendment: No. 68, in page 66, line 6, at end insert—
(1A) A scheme under section 1 or 14 may—
§ Mr. Michael Spicer
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.
§ Mr. Spicer
Amendment No. 70 is principally a clarificatory amendment. When property is to be transferred under the provisions of clause 14, it is the Government's expectation that the freehold will be transferred where the freehold is owned. That is what we, on the whole, expect. There may, however, be exceptional cases where it would be appropriate to create and transfer the leasehold interest leaving the freehold interest with the parent authority. The amendment is designed to put it beyond doubt that in such exceptional cases the transfer of property might include the transfer of a leasehold interest.
Amendments Nos. 68, 69 and 71 are technical and ensure continuity in respect of the byelaws that apply at airports.
§ Question put and agreed to.
§ Subsequent Lords amendments agreed to, some with special entry.
