Lords Amendment: In page 6, line 8, at end, insert:

"(5) Subsections (1) and (2) of section twenty-three of the Housing Repairs and Rents Act, 1954, shall not apply where the standard rent of the dwelling-house (within the meaning of that section) is a rent agreed or determined in accordance with the next following section."

11.10 p.m.

The Secretary of State for the Home Department and Welsh Affairs
(Sir David Maxwell Fyfe)

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

This Amendment secures that the standard rent fixed under Part I cannot be increased by a "repairs increase" under the Housing Repairs and Rent Act. I do not think that there is any controversy about this.

Question put, and agreed to.
