HC Deb 27 July 1981 vol 9 cc914-5

Lords amendment: No. 12, in page 34, leave out lines 23 to 34.

Mr. Goodhart

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

With this we may take Lords amendments No. 13 to 17 and 19.

Mr. Goodhart

It may be convenient to take Lords amendments. Nos. 12 to 22 en bloc. All the amendments proposed to the schedule are further repeals consequential upon the provision of the Bill. I have already spoken to amendments Nos. 16, 18, 21 and 22. Amendment No. 12 deletes a repeal that has been found not to be necessary. Amendments Nos. 15, 17 and 19 are again amendments required to Northern Ireland legislation consequent upon the statutory assimilation of the women's Services. Amendments Nos. 12, 13, 14 and 16 also reflect that assimilation and repeal statutory provisions that are now otiose. I commend the amendments to the House.

Question put and agreed to.

Lord amendments Nos. 13 to 22 agreed to.
