We intend that a decision made by the owners of a tenement should not be invalidated by a procedural mistake that occurred when the decision was being taken. Amendments 1, 68 and 70 ensure that that principle will cover any decision in respect of a tenement, unless the title deeds themselves make a specific provision on procedural matters.

I move amendment 1.

Amendment 1 agreed to.

Group 2 is on emergency work. Amendment 2, in the name of the minister, is grouped with amendment 69.

Amendments 2 and 69 deal with situations in which the title deeds for the tenement provide a way of arranging for emergency work but do not say how the cost of that work should be shared out. The amendments ensure that such shares will be split on the same basis as emergency work carried out under the tenement management scheme.

I move amendment 2.

Amendment 2 agreed to.
