§ Lords Amendment agreed to.
Lords Amendment No. 22: In page 19, line 28, at end insert:
( ) If on an application to a court under subsection (1) of the preceding section—
(a) the supervised person is brought before the court under a warrant issued or an interim order made by virtue of the preceding provisions of this section; or
(b) the court considers that it is likely to exercise its powers under that subsection to make an order in respect of the supervised person but, before deciding whether to do so, seeks information with respect to him which it considers is unlikely to be obtained unless the court makes an interim order in respect of him,
the court may make an interim order in respect of the supervised person".
§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment.
Under the law, which is contained in Section 67 of the Children and Young Persons Act of 1933, where a child under supervision is brought before a juvenile court, the court may make an interim order if it cannot decide at that time how to deal with him. The new subsection 462 gives the court a similar power where the supervised person is brought before a juvenile court under Clause 15(1). It applies when a warrant has been necessary to secure the presence of the supervised person, and when the making of an interim order is requisite for the obtaining of information—for example, a psychiatric report.
§ Question put and agreed to.
