I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.
The amendment relates to a point raised by my hon. Friend the Member for Thanet, North (Mr. Gale), who expressed concern about the scale of the problem of driving without insurance and asked for an increase in the penalties. The amendment is a positive response to his representations.
§ Mr. Roger Gale (Thanet, North)
I appreciate the action that has been taken. It will be greatly appreciated by those who have expressed concern.
§ Question put and agreed to.
§ Subsequent Lords amendments agreed to.
