§ Lords amendment: No. 29, in page 21, line 2, leave out from beginning to first "for" in line 4.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Scotland (Mr. John MacKay)
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.
This amendment deletes the change to section 42(3) of the Social Work (Scotland) Act 1968 made by clause 25(1) (a). The effect of paragraph 25(a) is subsumed in paragraph 25(b), and paragraph 25(a) is therefore redundant.
§ Question put and agreed to.
