§ ABOLITION OF ENHANCED PENALTIES ON SUBSEQUENT CONVICTION OF SUMMARY OFFENCES UNDER ACTS OF PARLIAMENT
§ Lords amendment: No. 52, in page 33, line 17, leave out "of Parliament".
§ Mr. Mayhew
The first amendment in this group is a drafting amendment. It removes from clause 31 the rather cumbersome phrase "Act of Parliament" when the word "Act" alone is sufficient.
Amendments Nos. 53, 54 and 55 are also straightforward. Together with similar amendments to clauses 32, 34, 36 and 38, they ensure that fixed and maximum fines for summary offences are caught by the provisions of this part of the Bill which apply to the uprating of fine levels.
§ Question put and agreed to.
