New Clause 27 - Part 4: Crown application

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill – in the House of Commons at 6:00 pm on 27 February 2024.

Alert me about debates like this

“(1) Sections 66 to 69 (sales information requests) bind the Crown.

(2) The other provisions of this Part—

(a) apply in relation to estate management carried out by, or on behalf of, a government department and otherwise bind the Crown in relation to such estate management, and

(b) bind the Crown in relation to other estate management only if carried out by, or on behalf of, a person other than the Crown.”—(Lee Rowley.)

This new clause, to be inserted in place of clause 70, expands the extent to which Part 4 binds the Crown. Clauses 66 to 69 bind the Crown in all respects. The Crown is also bound as respects the other provisions of the Part where estate management is carried out by a government department or a person other than the Crown.

Brought up, and added to the Bill.
