HL Deb 27 March 1919 vol 33 c1059

Clause 4, page 4, line 2, at the end of the clause insert the following new paragraph: (v) At the end of paragraph (a) of subsection (1) of section two of the principal Act there shall be inserted the following proviso: 'Provided that if the rateable value of the dwelling-house on the said third day of August exceeds the standard rent as so defined, that rateable value shall, as respects that house, be deemed to be the standard rent.'

The Commons disagree to this Amendment:

Because it is inexpedient to make substantial retrospective amendments to the principal Act.
