11 Clause 10, page 6, line 41, after "rent," insert,
( ) any date as from which there took effect a previous determination as to the amount of the rent made, otherwise than as arbitrator, by a person appointed under an agreement between the landlord and the tenant,".
§ 12 Clause 11, page 7, line 20, after "direction", insert ", determination".
My Lords, I beg to move that the House do agree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 11 and 12 en bloc. These are technical amendments. Under the Bill, the parties may agree to the appointment of a person to determine rent "otherwise than as arbitrator". The amendment to Clause 10 is necessary so that the rent review cycle takes account of any such rent determination in the same way as if an arbitrator had determined the rent at a rent review. The amendment to Clause 11 is consequential.
§ Moved, That the House do agree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 11 and 12 en bloc.—(Earl Howe.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
