HC Deb 22 March 2001 vol 365 c542
Mr. Speaker

I call the hon. Member for Sittingbourne and Sheppey (Mr. Wyatt) to move amendment No. 15, which is grouped with amendments Nos. 18 and 16.

Mr. Derek Wyatt (Sittingbourne and Sheppey)

I seek clarification, Mr. Speaker. I have been told that the amendments are acceptable to the promoters of the Bill. Is that true?

Mr. Paul Clark (Gillingham)

As the sponsor of the Bill, I inform the House that the promoters are willing to accept this group of amendments.

Mr. Wyatt

Do I need to move the amendment, Mr. Speaker? I am unsure of the form.

Mr. Speaker

The hon. Gentleman needs to move the amendment. Other Members may wish to speak to it.

Mr. Wyatt

I wish to move the amendment formally, Mr. Speaker.

Amendments made: No. 15 in page 2, line 6 leave out 'a newspaper circulating in the county' and insert— 'at least two newspapers circulating in the county and at least one national art and antiques trade periodica'. No. 18, in page 2, line 11 leave out 'three' and insert 'six'.

No. 16, in page 2, line 15, after 'newspaper', insert— 'or of any such art and antiques trade periodical'.—[Mr. Wyatt.]
