§ Read 3a (according to Order), with the Amendments.
§ THE MINISTER OF STATE, SCOTTISH OFFICE (LORD STRATHCLYDE)
My Lords, I regret having to trouble your Lordships at this stage with a small Amendment to this Bill. It is purely a drafting Amendment. It is an economy in the use of words; it deletes three lines of print and substitutes five words which mean exactly the same thing. I beg to move.
§ Amendment moved—
§ On Question, Amendment agreed to.
§ Bill passed, and returned to the Commons.
