HC Deb 30 April 1986 vol 96 cc1019-20
Mr. Giles Shaw

I beg to move amendment No. 37, in page 9, line 5, after 'police', insert 'reasonably'.

Mr. Speaker

With this we may take Government amendment No. 38.

Mr. Shaw

In Committee I undertook to look at aspects of the judicial review procedure—namely, the insertion of "reasonably" in two places in clause 13 which reflects the power to ban. I did so in response to amendments moved by the right hon. Member for Manchester, Gorton (Mr. Kaufman). These amendments give effect to that undertaking and add a requirement of reasonableness to the chief officer's belief, for the purposes of clause 13, and therefore bring the clause into line with clauses 12(1) and 14(1).

Mr. Kaufman

If it were not so pleasant, it would become monotonous, but I thank the Minister for fulfilling his undertaking.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendments made: No. 38, in page 9, line 22, after 'Metropolis', insert 'reasonably'.

No. 39, in page 9, line 42, after 'constable', insert 'in uniform'.—[Mr. Giles Shaw.]
