HC Deb 12 May 1982 vol 23 c901
Mr. Alexander Flethcer

I beg to move amendment No. 60, in page 47, line 26, at end insert—

  1. `(2) In any provision of this Act or of any enactment passed or made after the passing of this Act (including any provision inserted in an earlier enactment by such a provision) "statutory maximum", in relation to a fine on summery conviction in Scotland of an offence triable either summarily or on indictment, means the prescribed sum within the meaning of section 289B(6) of the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1975 (£1,000 or another sum fixed by order under section 289D(1) of that Act to take account of changes in the value of money).'.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

With this, it will be convenient to take Government amendments Nos. 65 to 74.

Mr. Fletcher

The new subsection achieves for Scotland what is already achieved for England, Wales and Northern Ireland by clause 48. The other amendments to the schedule are consequential.

Amendment agreed to.
