HC Deb 20 April 1998 vol 310 cc526-7

Lords amendment: No. 10, in page 16, line 32, at end insert—

("(1A) Section 33 extends to the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.")

6.30 pm
Mrs. Liddell

I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.

This is a technical amendment that would ensure that the transfer of the gilts registration function of the National Savings stock register to the Bank of England register also has legal effect in the Channel Islands and in the Isle of Man. I commend it to the House.

Mr. Gibb

Does this amendment have anything at all to do with the review into those territories being conducted by the Home Secretary?

Mrs. Liddell

With the leave of the House, Mr. Deputy Speaker—no.

Lords amendment agreed to.
