§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I beg to move, in page 23, line 39, to leave out Sub-section (3), and to insert instead thereof
(3) Any enactments in force at the commencement of this Act which relate to the summary trial of indictable offences or which refer to indictable offences which are triable summarily shall, subject to the provisions of this Section, be construed, as the case may be, as applying to the summary trial of indictable offences under this Section or as referring to all indictable offences which are triable summarily thereunder.
I propose to insert the same Sub-section in a little different words. The Amendment, in effect, applies the existing machinery that is necessary for giving 155 effect to the intentions of the Bill, and makes a little clearer the words in the Bill.
§ Amendment agreed to.
