Lords amendment: No. 8, in page 2, line 2, after ("disposals);") insert—
("( ) paragraph I of Schedule 6A to that Act (covenants requiring redemption of landlord's share);")
§ Mr. Thurnham
The amendments are very technical and can be explained briefly. The part of clause 2 which is amended—as recommended by the Law Commission—excepts from the operation of the Act certain covenants entered into by tenants of local authorities who exercise their right to buy, to prevent them from making unjustified profits from an early sale so that they will continue to be bound by those covenants notwithstanding the new regime.
Lords amendments Nos. 8 and 9 make the necessary provision for excepting from the Act a further such covenant which was not picked up in the first draft of the Bill.
Mr. John M. Taylor
As my hon. Friend said, amendments Nos. 8 and 9 are entirely technical. I hope that the House will accept them as such.
§ Lords amendment agreed to.
§ Lords amendments Nos. 9 to 11 agreed to.
