§ 7 Page 55, line 37, after 'conviction' insert 'in England and Wales and Scotland, to a fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard acale and, on summary conviction in Northern Ireland,'
§ The Lord Chancellor
My Lords, in moving Amendment No. 7, I shall, if I may, refer also to Amendments Nos. 9 and 11. I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 7. This is the third group of amendments to which I referred at the beginning of my remarks. It is required to take account of the provisions in the Criminal Justice Bill relating to fines, 492 which, your Lordships will remember, amend the law which is consolidated by the present Bill. Like the first part of the Amendment No. 14, on which I have spoken, the second part of Amendment No. 14 is required as a transitional provision. I beg to move.
Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said amendment.—(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
