HC Deb 23 June 1993 vol 227 c401
Mrs. Gillian Shephard

I beg to move amendment No. 48, in page 66, leave out line 31 and insert—

1. The repeals in the Agriculture Act 1957 are without prejudice to sections 50(2) and 51(2) above.'.

This is a purely technical amendment. It deletes the current reference in schedule 5 to termination of the wool guarantee having effect from 1 May 1993. It follows from a Government amendment adopted in Committee to alter the date of the coming into effect of clause 50—then clause 48—from 1 May 1993 to the date of the enactment of the Bill. It also confirms that repeal of schedule 1 to the Agriculture Act 1957 does not affect the saving clauses in relation to the wool and potato guarantees. I hope that the House will accept the amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Forward to
