HC Deb 06 February 1945 vol 407 cc1911-41
The Solicitor-General (Major Sir David Maxwell Fyfe)

I beg to move, in page 12, line 36, leave out "the actual offender," and insert: a person to whose act or default the offence was due. This Amendment, and the following Amendment which is in exactly the same words, introduce words which in our opinion are more apt to deal with the problems raised in Clauses 11 and 16. They follow the words indicated as being proper in these circumstances by a decision of the High Court.

Amendment agreed to.

Consequential Amendment made.
