Mr. Deputy Speaker
It will be convenient to discuss at the same time Government amendments Nos. 48 and 49.
§ Mr. MacKay
In Committee, I undertook to consider whether it was necessary under present circumstances to give the Lord Advocate an order-making power to direct that the arrestment provision to be introduced by clause 49 should not apply. I now take the view that such a power is not necessary, and this series of amendments removes the order-making power and makes consequential drafting changes.
§ Amendment agreed to.
§ Amendments made: No. 48, in page 37, line 5, leave out paragraph (b).
§ No. 49, in page 37, line 14, leave out paragraph (e).—[Mr. John MacKay.]
