HL Deb 22 April 1971 vol 317 cc847-8

[No. 43]

Schedule 3, page 44, line 25, at end insert — () Where under the preceding provisions of this paragraph the authority are to make available any fittings, or furniture, office or other equipment or other chattels —

  1. (a) it shall be their duty to keep them in order and repair and to clean them;
  2. (b) the appropriate Minister shall pay their reasonable and necessary charges under paragraph (a) above;
  3. (c) if and so far as greater use is made of any such fittings or chattels for Supreme Court and county court business as compared with their use for business of the abolished courts, the appropriate Minister shall make such payment to the authority by way of hire payments as is reasonable, but not so as to make any payment in respect of anything taken into account in paying rent under sub-paragraph (6) above."


My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 43. This corrects a very minor omission, and I think I need not give it any further consideration.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
