I beg to move amendment No. 260, in page 90, line 31, leave out paragraph (f) and insert—

'(f) references to an interest, in relation to land in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, are to any legal estate or equitable interest or power;

(g) references to an interest, in relation to land in Scotland, are to any estate, interest, servitude or other heritable right in or over land, including a heritable security;

references to an interest, in relation to property other than land, include references to a right (including a right to possession).'.

With this we may discuss clause stand part.

The amendment expands on, and clarifies, what is meant by references to an interest, in relation to land, and other property. It mirrors what is contained in clause 84 for England and Wales. Therefore, it achieves consistency on both sides of the border.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 150, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 151 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
