HC Deb 01 April 1981 vol 2 c432
Mr. Michael Marshall

I beg to move amendment No. 25, in page 14, line 29 after 'running', insert 'telecommunication systems, that is to say'.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

With this we may take Government amendments Nos. 29, 57 and 58.

Mr. Marshall

The term "telecommunication system" appears in various places in the Bill, but the expression is not defined. These amendments provide for a definition in terms of those systems covered by the exclusive privilege in clause 12(1). I think that this will make the Bill clearer, and I commend the amendments to the House.

Mr. Charles R. Morris

Government amendment No. 57 relates to clause 55. In Committee the Under-Secretary gave an undertaking to consider the services provided over post office counters and table a reasoned amendment on Report. There is no reasoned amendment. Will the Minister look as this again?

Mr. Marshall

I shall look into that matter further.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment made: No. 27 in page 15, leave out lines 11 to 22.—[Mr. Michael Marshall.]
