HC Deb 22 October 1986 vol 102 cc1263-4
Mr. Lee

I beg to move amendment No. 9, in page 8, line 16, leave out 'sections 4(1) and' and insert 'section'.

Mr. Speaker

With this, it will be convenient to discuss Government amendment No. 10.

Mr. Lee

These are simple, technical amendments. They remove from the Bill the reference to section 4(1) of the Equal Pay Act. The whole of section 4 of the Equal Pay Act was repealed on 25 September 1986 by the Wages Act. Therefore, to retain the reference to section 4(1) in the Bill would serve no purpose and would be meaningless.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment made: No. 10, in page 8, line 17, leave out 'they refer' and insert 'it refers'.— [Mr. Lee.]

Bill to be read the Third time tomorrow.
