HC Deb 20 February 1967 vol 741 cc1251-2

Amendments made: No. 12, in page 3, line 38, leave out from 'urine)' to second 'that' in line 41 and insert: 'if he has previously been given an opportunity to provide a specimen of breath for a breath test at that station under subsection (7) of the last foregoing section, and either— (a) it appears to a constable on the breath test'.

No. 13, in line 44, leave out from 'when' to 'he' in line 45 and insert: 'given the opportunity to provide that specimen'.—[Mr. Taverne.]

Mr. John Morris

I beg to move Amendment No. 14, in page 4, line 2, to leave out from 'provide' to end of line 3 and insert: 'at the hospital a specimen for a laboratory test'. This is a drafting Amendment. Its purpose is to remove any ambiguity as to the place of a laboratory test. The present wording of subsection (2) could give an erroneous impression that a specimen provided in a hospital would be analysed at the hospital.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendments made: No. 15, in page 4, line 4, leave out 'preliminary' and insert 'breath'.

No. 16, in page 4, line 11, leave out 'preliminary' and insert 'breath'.

No. 17, in page 4, line 38, leave out 'preliminary' and insert 'breath'.—[Mr. John Morris.]
