HC Deb 26 July 1967 vol 751 cc908-9

Lords Amendment: No. 217, in page 113, line 14, at the end to insert:

"THE VAGRANCY ACT 1824 (c. 83)

1. In section 5 (committal of incorrigible rogues to quarter sessions) for the words from "to the house of correction" onwards there shall be substituted the words "to quarter sessions, either in custody or on bail"."

Mr. Taverne

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

Perhaps it might be convenient to consider at the same time Lords Amendments Nos. 218, 219, 220, 222, 223, and 225–229.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

If that meets with the approval of the House.

Mr. Taverne

These Amendments to the "Minor and Consequential Amendments" Schedule are, with one small exception, dependent upon provisions of the Bill or Amendments which have been discussed earlier. The exception is Amendment No. 226 which, as well as making a number of drafting Amendments, enables persons sentenced under the Children and Young Persons Act (Northern Ireland), 1950 to detention for certain grave crimes to be subject to supervision in England and Wales, Scotland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man if the are released on licence in Northern Ireland.
