THE LORD CHANCELLOR
My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 4. This again is really no more than technical. It is intended to clarify the power of the Crown Court to grant bail. It makes clear that that Court can grant bail to persons awaiting trial, or sentence, or waiting for their appeals to be heard.
Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.—(The Lord Chancellor.)
On Question, Motion agreed to.
