§ FURTHER PROVISIONS WITH RESPECT TO FIXED PENALTY OFFENCES AND NOTICES
§ Lords amendment: No. 25, in page 30, line 25, leave out "and"
§ Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Paul Dean)
With this it will be convenient to take Lords amendment No. 26.
§ Mrs. Chalker
The amendment provides that a fixed penalty notice given to an offender under clause 26(1) of the Bill in Scotland should be in a prescribed—in other words, a defined—form. The form is to be prescribed by virtue of clause 60 in regulations made by the Secretary of State. The reason is straightforward. In Scotland, the fixed penalty notice in which hon. Members were so interested a moment ago can become the principal court document—in other words, the complaint, similar to a summons in England and Wales—in cases where the driver exercises his right to go to court. This is a simple and straightforward pair of amendments.
