I beg to move, in page 12, line 10, to leave out:

"if the local authority so agree."
This Amendment carries out a pledge given to the hon. and gallant Member for Central Glasgow (Colonel Hutchison). He raised the point of the local authority's agreement being required before the owner could repay the grant, and pointed out that it would be quite easy for the owner to breach one of the conditions under which he should have repaid the grant, whether he likes it or not. We were compelled to accept the logic of that argument, and this Amendment is introduced to meet the point.

Amendment agreed to.
