Lords amendment: No. 22, in page 8, line 22, leave out ("sections 17A and 17B below") and insert
("paragraphs 3 and 4 of Schedule (Reciprocal enforcement of certain orders) to the Criminal Justice Act 1991 (reciprocal enforcement of certain orders)")
§ Madam Deputy Speaker (Miss Betty Boothroyd)
With this, it will be convenient to take Lords amendments Nos. 23, 105, 112, 135 to 137, 164, 166 to 168 and 171.
§ Mr. Patten
This group of amendments makes sensible arrangements for persons subject to certain community sentences imposed by a court in England or Wales to carry out the sentence in Scotland—incidentally, I see that the hon. Member for Greenock and Port Glasgow (Dr. Godman) is with us—or Northern Ireland if that is their normal place of residence. It also makes arrangements for an offender convicted or sentenced in Scotland or Northern Ireland to carry out the sentence in England or Wales if that is where he or she lives. The amendments bring the existing provision for reciprocal enforcement up to date in the light of the new framework for community penalties provided in the Bill, which has been widely welcomed.
§ Question put and agreed to.
§ Subsequent Lords amendments agreed to.
