HC Deb 22 July 1996 vol 282 c42

Lords amendment: No. 92, after clause 72, to insert the following new clause—Section 354 direction to be local land charge. In section 354 of the Housing Act 1985 (power to limit number of occupants of house), at the end insert— "(8) A direction under this section is a local land charge.".

Mr. Clappison

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

With this, it will be convenient to take Lords amendments Nos. 94, 95 and 320.

Mr. Clappison

This is a group of miscellaneous amendments relating to houses in multiple occupation. Amendment No. 95 allows local housing authorities eight weeks instead of four to decide whether to make a compulsory purchase order which defers the obligation to prepare and serve a management scheme for a house in multiple occupation, subject to a control order.

Lords amendment agreed to.
