“In section 6(6) of the Local Government Finance Act 1992, in the definition of ‘material interest’—

(a) for ‘or a’ substitute ‘, a’;

(b) after ‘more’ insert ‘or a tenancy that is or was previously an assured tenancy within the meaning of the Housing Act 1988’.”—

This new clause makes tenants under an assured tenancy continue to be liable for council tax until the end of the tenancy even if they vacate the property and leave it unoccupied before the end of their tenancy. The new clause is expected to be inserted before clause 20.

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
