HC Deb 21 October 1982 vol 29 c568


Lords amendment: No. 99, after clause 36, insert:

"H. In section 2(3) of the Emergency Powers Act 1920 for "of one hundred pounds" there shall be substituted "not exceeding level 5 on the standard scale, as defined in section [Construction of references to "the standard scale"] of the Criminal Justice Act 1982, or not exceeding a lesser amount"."
Mr. Mayhew

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

Mr. Deputy Speaker

With this it will be convenient to take Lords amendments Nos. 189 and 207.

Mr. Mayhew

This is not a new provision, but for technical reasons it is necessary to bring into a new clause the provisions relating to the increase in penalties under the Emergency Powers Act which are located in schedules 3 and 7 to the Bill. These are deleted by amendments Nos. 189 and 207.

Question put and agreed to.
