§ LORD CHORLEY
My Lords, I beg to move that this House do agree with the Commons in the proposed Amendment. In this case, which is a question of appeals, your Lordships proposed in Committee to insert three cases where there should not be an appeal—very obvious cases, such as a probation order or an order for conditional discharge. In another place it was pointed out that there is a type of case where the penalty is automatic and cannot be varied, such as the endorsement of a driving licence for the offence of driving to the danger of the public. That is a case in which the penalty cannot in any sense be varied. Therefore, there is no sense in allowing an appeal. It seems to me sensible that this fourth case should be added to the other conditions. I beg to move that this House do agree with the Amendment made to the Lords Amendment.
