HC Deb 29 October 1985 vol 84 c881

Lords amendment: No. 65, in page 31, line 15, at end insert— as it applies to a public service vehicle".

Mr. Ancram

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 the following Lords amendments:

No. 66, in page 31, line 16, at end insert— motor vehicle as it applies to a public service".

No. 67, in line 17, leave out from "the" to the end of line 22 and insert "omission of subsection (4)".

Mr. Ancram

The substantive effect of these amendments is to make the penalty for driving a passenger vehicle with more than eight passenger seats, which has had a prohibition placed on it, identical irrespective of whether or not it is a public service vehicle. The penalty level is level 5, and it will be for the courts to fix penalties in the light of all the circumstances of an offence.

Question put and agreed to.

Lords amendments Nos. 66 and 67 agreed to.
