HC Deb 18 April 1958 vol 586 c543

Amendment made: In page 9, line 21, leave out paragraph (b) and insert: (b) in the case of a body corporate which is for the time being enrolled by virtue of paragraph (a), paragraph (c) or paragraph (d) of subsection (2) of section four of this Act, the Disciplinary Committee is of opinion that the condition, or any of the conditions, for the enrolment of the body corporate under that subsection are no longer satisfied.—[Mr. Russell.]

Mr. Russell

I beg to move, in page 9, line 31, at the end to insert: Where a registered optician dies while he is either a director of an enrolled body corporate or the manager of that part of the business of an enrolled body corporate which consists of the testing of sight or the fitting and supply of optical appliances, he shall be deemed, for the purposes of this subsection, to have continued to be a director of that body or a manager of that part of its business, as the case may be, until the expiration of the three months beginning with the date of his death or until a director or manager is appointed in his place, whichever occurs first. The Amendment is partly consequential upon the Amendments to lines 33 and 37, in page 3. The effect is to transfer subsection (4) of Clause 23 to what we consider to be a more appropriate place in the Bill. The Amendment extends the subsection to cover the replacing of a manager of a company or co-operative society as well as a director.

Mr. Burden

I beg to second the Amendment.

Amendment agreed to.
