HC Deb 28 June 1988 vol 136 c261

Amendment made: No. 189, in page 6, line 43, leave out `a metropolitan stipendiary magistrate' and insert `the chief metropolitan stipendiary magistrate or a metropolitan stipendiary magistrate designated as mentioned in section 5(1) (a) above'—[Mr. John Patten.]

Mr. John Patten

I beg to move amendment No. 253, in page 7, line 42, leave out from 'court' to `unless' in line 44.

Mr. Deputy Speaker

With this it will be convenient to consider Government Amendments Nos. 254, to 259, 275, 260 to 264, 276, 265 to 271 and 277.

Mr. Patten

These amendments cover quite a lot of paper but they make only technical, albeit essential, changes to the committal and appeals provisions of the Bill. I commend them to the House.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendments made: No. 254, in page 7, line 49, at end insert— `(8A) if the court commits a person under subsection (8) above, it shall issue a certificate of the offence against the law of the United Kingdom which would be constituted by his conduct.'.—[Mr. John Patten.]
