HC Deb 27 July 1960 vol 627 cc1693-4

Lords Amendment: In page 42, line 24, after first "person" insert: , subsection (4) shall have effect as if for the reference to an accused person there was substituted a reference to a child or young person.

The Lord Advocate (Mr. William Grant)

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.

This is extension of an Amendment accepted by the House on Report and it ensures that a child or young person brought before the court under the Children and Young Persons (Scotland) Act, 1937, shall have the same right to a medical examination, as that given to other persons under this Bill.

Question put and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendment agreed to.
