HC Deb 20 October 1971 vol 823 cc740-1
The Solicitor-General

I beg to move Amendment No. 8, in page 168, line 10, leave out "that section" and insert "section 74 of this Act".

This Amendment is simply to correct a drafting error. As the Clause stands at the moment, there is reference in line 10 to "that section", which would be taken as referring back to Section 81(2) in line 7. That is an erroneous reference in the light of the consolidation which has been undertaken. The reference should be to Section 74, which is where the corresponding provisions now appear in this consolidated Bill. I hope that the function of the Amendment will be understood by the House, even if not everybody has been able to follow the exact mechanics of it.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 185, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 186 to 295 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Schedules 1 to 10 agreed to.
