HC Deb 02 July 1982 vol 26 c1171

Lords amendment: No. 18, in page 13, line 33, leave out "and 16" and insert ", 16 and 17"

Mr. Raison

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

Mr. Deputy Speaker

With this amendment it will be convenient to take Lords amendments Nos. 19 and 20.

Mr. Raison

The effect of the amendment is to bring clause 17 as well as clause 16 into effect in the area of any local authority which has complied with the requirements of clause 13, and thereby taken powers to require the registration of acupuncturists under clause 14 or tattooists, ear piercers or electrolysists under clause 15. It is purely a drafting amendment that is consequent upon the introduction of clause 17 on Report.

Question put and agreed to.
