HC Deb 19 July 1974 vol 877 c877
Mr. Maclennan

I beg to move Amendment No. 10, in page 18, line 23, leave out 'of inspection'.

Clause 35(4) permits the director to determine that the right of inspection conferred by Clause 35(3)(a) shall be exercisable in relation to a copy of the register instead of or in addition to the original. It is now considered that there is a flaw in this in that Clause 35(3)(a) entitles people to take copies of entries in the register as well as to inspect the register.

By deleting the words "of inspection", the Amendment makes it clear that the public will be entitled to exercise both aspects of the right conferred by Clause 35(3)(a)—first, inspection, and, secondly, taking copies of entries—in relation to a copy of the register.

Amendment agreed to.

Forward to
