HC Deb 14 November 1988 vol 140 cc769-70
The Solicitor-General

I beg to move amendment No. 3, in page 27, line 39, leave out 'an' and insert 'a constable or'.

Subsections (4) and (5) derive from section 28(1) and (2) of the Transport Act 1982, which provides for a person who has committed a fixed penalty offence to produce his licence to a constable at a police station in order to obtain a fixed penalty notice. The Criminal Justice Act 1988 extended this provision so that the licence might be produced to an authorised person, that is, a person authorised by the chief officer of police. In the clause the references to a constable have not been reproduced, and amendments 3 to 7 rectify that omission.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendments made: No. 4, in page 28, line 2, leave out 'an' and insert 'a constable or'.

No. 5, in line 6, after first 'the', insert 'constable or'.

No. 6, in line 9, after 'the', insert 'constable or'.

No. 7, in line 11, after 'the', insert 'constable or'.

No. 8, leave out lines 25 and 26.—[The Solicitor-General.]

Clause 54, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 55 to 88 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
