HC Deb 03 August 1976 vol 916 c1488
Dr. Summerskill

I beg to move Amendment No. 1, in page 12, line 29, leave out 'at' and insert 'before'.

This is a minor drafting amendment, consequential upon the acceptance in Committee of a group of Government amendments, the effect of which was to make it clear that a person surrendering to his bail surrenders into the custody of the court. The amendment brings the wording of Clause 10 into line with that used in Clause 2(2) and elsewhere in the Bill, specifying where a person bailed is under a duty to appear. As a result of the amendment, a person granted bail by a coroner, like a person granted bail by a magistrates' court on committal for trial at the Crown court, will be under a duty to appear before the Crown court, not at the Crown court.

Amendment agreed to.
