I beg to move amendment No. 301, in page 251, line 16, at end insert—

'(4A) Property is obtained by a person if he obtains an interest in it.

(4B) References to an interest, in relation to property other than land, include references to a right (including a right to possession).'.

The amendment is purely technical. Its purpose is to simplify and clarify what is meant by property under part 11.
