§ The Lord Chancellor (Lord Hailsham of Saint Marylebone)
My Lords, I beg to introduce a Bill to amend the law about limitation of actions in relation to actions for damages for negligence not involving personal injuries; and to provide for a person taking an interest in property to have, in certain circumstances, a cause of action in respect of negligent damage to the property occurring before he takes that interest. I beg to move that the Bill be now read a first time.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read a first time.—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Bill read a first time, and to be printed.
