§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR
My Lords, your Lordships will remember that Clause 5 empowers a court at its discretion to commit a child or young person to the care of a local authority as a fit person. The Amendments provide that, where a probation or supervision order is in force, the court will not be empowered to commit a child to the care of the local authority unless with the consent of the authority. I beg to move.
§ Moved, That this House do agree with the Commons in the said Amendments.—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
