HC Deb 05 December 1949 vol 470 c1621

Another Amendment made to the Bill in lieu of the Lords Amendment disagreed to: In page 9, line 19, leave out from "infant," to end of line 22, and insert: In subsection (2), after the word "person," where that word first occurs, there shall be inserted the words "other than the consent of an infant"; and in subsection (3), for the words "admissible as evidence," there shall be substituted the words "sufficient evidence," and for the words "admissible as aforesaid," the words "sufficient evidence as aforesaid."—[Mr. Nield.]

Lords Amendment, in page 9, line 22, at end insert: and in subsection (4) for any reference to rules there shall be substituted a reference to an Act of Sederunt, and any reference to a justice of the peace shall include a reference to the sheriff.

Mr. Younger

I beg to move, as an Amendment to the Lords Amendment, in line 1, to leave out: "and in subsection (4)."

This is purely a consequential Amendment upon the long Amendment which the House accepted to page 2, line 21.

Amendment to the Lords Amendment agreed to.

Remaining Lords Amendments agreed to.
