Fur Farming (Prohibition) Bill — Compensation for existing businesses — 22 Nov 2000

Lords amendments considered.

Lords amendment: No. 1, in page 3, line 16, after second ("of") insert ("income and non-income").

I beg to move, That this House agrees with the Lords in the said amendment.

Mr. Deputy Speaker:

With this it will be convenient to take Lords amendment No. 2, amendments (a) and (b) thereto, Lords amendments Nos. 3 and 4, Lords amendment No. 5 and amendments (a) and (b) thereto.

A scheme . . . need not provide for the making of payments in respect of all income losses or all non-income losses or (as the case may be) in respect of all businesses.

No compensation should be required for the land--that would have alternative uses--but compensation may be required for buildings and equipment . . .--[ Official Report, House of Lords , 17 October 2000; Vol. 617, c. 34.]

Section 5 shall come into force at the end of the period of two months beginning with the day on which this Act is passed.

It is a matter of detail, but I presume that the term "the Act is passed" means Royal Assent rather than the Act being finally approved by both Houses of Parliament. I do not want to make much of an issue of that, because I suspect that the time difference between the two will not be great. It seems clear that the Act will come into force two months after it is passed.

need not provide for the making of payments in respect of all income losses or all non-income losses or (as the case may be) in respect of all businesses--

the description or descriptions of income losses and the description or descriptions of non-income losses in respect of which payments are to be made

the description or descriptions of businesses in respect of which payments are to be made.

Lords amendment agreed to.

Lords amendment: No. 2, in page 3, line 20, leave out from ("scheme") to ("of") in line 22 and insert

("shall, in particular, specify--

(a) the description or descriptions of income losses and the description or descriptions of non-income losses in respect of which payments are to be made, and

(b) the description or descriptions of businesses in respect of which payments are to be made,

but need not provide for the making of payments in respect of all income losses or all non-income losses or (as the case may be) in respect of all businesses.

( ) A scheme shall also, in particular--

( ) specify the basis or bases")

Amendment proposed to the Lords amendment: (b), in line 8, leave out "but need not" and insert "and shall".-- [Mr. Hogg.]

Question put, That the amendment to the Lords amendment be made:--

The House divided: Ayes 27, Noes 303.
