HC Deb 22 January 1980 vol 977 cc344-5


Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

I beg to move amendment No. 14, in page 6, line 19, at end insert— '(a) to arrange for any undertaking accepted by him under this section to be published in such manner as appears to him to be appropriate.'.

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Bernard Weatherill)

With this amendment it will be convenient to take Government amendments Nos. 15, 18 and 40.

Mrs. Oppenheim

I was asked in Committee to give an assurance that all undertakings received by the Director General under the Bill would be published. I am sure that this would be his practice in any event, and he will be encouraged to do so by the terms of clause 18. However, I see no harm in introducing a stronger requirement to this effect, and that is the purpose of this amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment made:No. 15, in page 6, line 20, leave out from 'any' to 'and' in line 21 and insert such undertaking'.

No. 16, in page 7, line 14, leave out 'made by statutory instrument'.

No. 17, in page 7, line 18, leave out from 'authenticity' to end of line 20.—[Mrs. Sally Oppenheim.]
