Subsection (2) of Section seventeen of the Increase of Rent and Mortgage Interest (Restrictions) Act, 1920 (which extends the jurisdiction of county courts in respect of proceedings under that Act) shall have effect in relation to any claim or proceedings for the recovery of any sum which is recoverable by virtue of this Act as it applies to the claims and proceedings mentioned in that subsection. —[Mr. Blenkinsop]

Brought up, and read the First time.

I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time."

This new Clause merely provides the procedure by which the lump sums we have been considering in the previous Clause are to be recovered. It is the same procedure as is provided in the principal Acts.

I understand that it does not raise any great question of principle, and in the circumstances we offer no objection.

Question put, and agreed to.

Clause read a Second time, and added to the Bill.
