HC Deb 20 June 1984 vol 62 c449

Lords amendment: No. 14, in page 24, line 15, leave out "on oath".

1.30 am
Mr. Allan Stewart

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

This is a common sense amendment arising from comments made in Committee by the hon. Member for Glasgow, Garscadden (Mr. Dewar). It restricts the powers of the assessor of public undertakings to what is necessary to enable him to carry out his modern statutory functions. I commend the amendment to the House.

Question put and agreed to.
