HC Deb 19 April 1995 vol 258 c243
Mr. Jack

I beg to move amendment No. 1, in page 7, line 18, after 'rent', insert— `( ) any date as from which there took effect a previous determination as to the amount of the rent made, otherwise than as arbitrator, by a person appointed under an agreement between the landlord and the tenant.'.

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Geoffrey Lofthouse)

With this, it will be convenient to discuss Government amendment No. 2.

Mr. Jack

This is a technical amendment. Under the Bill, parties may agree to the appointment of a person to determine rent "otherwise than as arbitrator". The amendment is necessary so that the rent review cycle takes account of any such rent determination in the same way as if an arbitrator had determined the rent at a rent review. The amendment to clause 11 is consequential on that amendment.

Amendment agreed to.
