HC Deb 21 October 1982 vol 29 c633


The Solicitor-General

I beg to move amendment No. 7, in page 55, line 37, after 'conviction', insert 'in England and Wales and Scotland, to a fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard scale and, on summary conviction in Northern Ireland,'

Mr. Deputy Speaker

With this we may discuss Government amendments Nos. 9 and 11.

The Solicitor-General

These amendments take account of the new provisions for fines in the Criminal Justice Bill, substituting levels on the standard scale in place of monetary references in England and Wales and in Scotland for offences which can be tried only summarily.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment made: No. 8 in page 56, line 17, after '51', insert '(other than subsection (2)(c))'.—[The Solicitor-General.]

Clause 71, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 72 to 80 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
