[References are to Bill 61 as first printed for the Commons]

[No. 1]

Clause 8, page 10, line 36, at end insert— (7) Nothing in this Part of this Act shall prevent a tenancy from being or becoming a protected or statutory tenancy within the meaning of the Rent (Scotland) Act 1971, but nothing in that Act restricting the power of a court to make an order for possession of a dwelling-house shall prevent the granting of a decree of removing under section 9(1) of this Act.

[No. 2] Clause 10, page 13, line 23, leave out subsection (6).

The noble Lord said: My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 1 and 2. These Amendments are simple. They deal with a point raised by the noble Lord, Lord Balerno, on Second Reading in your Lordships' House. I beg to move.

Moved, that this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendments.—(Lord Hughes.)


My Lords, I should like to express my gratitude for these Amendments being put into the Bill. Unfortunately this clarification of the law may mean rather less business for the Bar in Scotland.

On Question, Motion agreed to.
