I beg to move amendment No. 473, in page 176, line 45, leave out subsection (2).

Here we go again, Mr. McWilliam. Clause 307(1) states:

''If a person grants an interest in his recoverable property, the question whether the interest is also recoverable is to be determined in the same manner as it is on any other disposal of recoverable property.''

That is a clear statement. However, the following subsection merely offers a further example of it, and, for the same reasons that I have previously raised, I ask the Minister whether it is necessary.
