HC Deb 21 March 1955 vol 538 c1825

7.57 p.m.

The Under-Secretary of State for Air (Mr. George Ward)

I beg to move, in page 26, line 12, to leave out "in writing."

This and the following Amendment, in line 14, are drafting Amendments. As the Clause stands at present, the commander of the guard is required, by subsection (3, b), to give in writing to his superior officer the written report which he has received about the offence.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: In page 26, line 14, at beginning insert "a written statement containing."
