HC Deb 21 October 1998 vol 317 cc1356-7

Amendment made: No. 32, in page 13, line 25, leave out 'and 20' and insert 20 and 21(6)'.—[Mr. Clelland.]

Mr. Mike O'Brien

I beg to move amendment No. 33, in page 13, line 33, leave out 'committed' and insert `taking place'.

This is a drafting amendment to clause 22(4). At present it provides that clause 7(1)(b) applies to proceedings brought by or at the instigation of a public authority whenever the act in question took place, but that otherwise clause 7(1)(b) does not apply to an act committed before clause 7 comes into force. Amendment No. 33 replaces "committed" by "taking place" so as to be consistent with the earlier reference.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment made: No. 34, in page 13, line 35, at end insert— '() Section 21(6), so far as it relates to any provision contained in the Army Act 1955, the Air Force Act 1955 or the Naval Discipline Act 1957, extends to any place to which that provision extends.'.—[Mr. Cle[land.]
