HC Deb 26 July 1963 vol 681 c1990

Lords Amendment: In page 12, line 19, at end insert: (2) In this section, 'young person' means a person who has not attained the age of eighteen".

Mr. Hare

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

This Amendment anticipates the two following Amendments which delete the references to young persons in Clause 19. Since the term "young person" will then appear only in. Clause 18, it is desirable for drafting reasons to transfer the definition from Clause 88 to Clause 18. This Amendment therefore puts the definition of a young person into Clause 18 and a later Amendment will delete it from Clause 88.

Question put and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendments agreed to.
