Lords amendment: No. 53, after Clause 54 insert—
.—(1) This section applies to the disposal of any land—
(2) A relevant airport operator shall not dispose of any land to which this section applies, or any interest or right in or over such land, with the period of 25 years beginning with the date of its acquisition as mentioned in subsection (1), unless—
(3) Any consent of the Secretary of State under this section may be given subject to such conditions as he thinks fit.
§ Mr. Michael Spicer
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.
1123 I think that the House will agree that this is a sensible amendment. The new clause enables the Secretary of State to apply Crichel Down rules to the disposal of land that has been compulsorily purchased.
§ Question put and agreed to.
