§ Lord Renton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will implement the recommendations contained in the Law Commission's report Landlord and Tenant, Distress for Rent (Law Com. 194).
§ The Lord Chancellor (Lord Mackay of Clashfern):
Having considered this report, I have decided that it would be right to invite views on the conclusions reached by the Law Commission and in particular on the question whether, if the case for abolition is in general made out, the remedy of distress for rent should nevertheless be retained for business tenancies.
