§ Mr. Goodhart
I beg to move, That this house doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.
Amendment No. 11 to schedule 4 is again a consequential amendment required for Northern Ireland legislation.
Paragraph 2 of schedule 4 already provides for the new custodial orders proposed in clause 2 of the Bill for young Service offenders to be subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, which applies to Great Britain, and the amendment will achieve the same effect for Northern Ireland. I commend it to the House.
§ Question put and agreed to.
