Mr. Millan

I beg to move Amendment No. 179, in page 81, line 42, at end insert:

15 & 16 Geo. 6. & 1 Eliz. 2. c. 61. The Prisons (Scotland) Act 1952. Section 18(l)to(3A)-In section 32, in sub-section (3), the words 'who is net less than seventeen years of age', and subsection (4).
This is basically a drafting Amendment. The hon. Member for Perth and East Perthshire (Mr. MacArthur) early on in our proceedings in Committee asked why this particular repeal of Section 18(1) to (3A) of The Prisons (Scotland) Act, 1952, was not in Schedule 8. I did not have a very good answer for him then. I hope that the hon. Gentleman will accept that we have now put this right. I know it is late on in the Bill, but it is necessary.

Mr. Ian MacArthur (Perth and East Perthshire)

I am obliged to the hon. Gentleman for reminding the House that it was I who called his attention to the need for this Amendment in Committee. We called the hon. Gentleman's attention to the need for this Amendment early on in Committee and it is a great pity— I say no more than that at this stage— that the Government did not see fit to table this Amendment, along with many others, in Committee. It is a pity that so much time has been taken today debating Amendments which could have been dealt with in Committee.

Amendment agreed to.
