Mr. Mayhew

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

Mr. Deputy Speaker

With this it will be convenient to take Lords amendment No. 113.

Mr. Mayhew

Clause 40 lists the provisions which are affected by the power to alter maximum fines and certain other sums by order. Amendment No. 112 merely adds to the list those provisions which enable standing civilian courts to impose financial penalties on a juvenile. Amendment 113 similarly adds to the list the table of maximum periods of imprisonment in default now applicable to Crown courts by virtue of clause 52, the maximum fine available to standing civilian courts under the Armed Forces Act 1976, the relevant provisions of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1982 which provide maxima higher than £1,000 for offences relating to the licensing of sex establishments, and the similar provision in the Cinematograph (Amendment) Act 1982 relating to the licensing of cinemas.

Question put and agreed to.

Lords amendment No. 113 agreed to.
