I beg to move amendment 10, in clause 7, page 13, line 23, leave out paragraph (c).

The amendment relates to tribunal costs. As the Committee knows, the clause amends the Housing Act 2004 in respect of a residential property tribunal’s proposed jurisdiction in licensing decision appeals under the 1960 Act. Amendment 10 gives effect to the Government’s policy intention that the maximum amount of costs the tribunal can award against a party that has acted unreasonably in connection with proceedings before a tribunal is £500.

Amendment 10 agreed to.

Clause 7, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 8 and 9 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
