§ Lord Young of Graffham
My Lords, I beg to move that this House do agree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 12 and 13. These changes, which are purely technical, were necessary to remove from the Bill the reference to Section 4(1) of the Equal Pay Act. The whole of Section 4 of the Equal Pay Act was repealed on 25th September 1986 by the Wages Act. To have retained the reference to Section 4(1) of this Bill would have been meaningless. I ask your Lordships to agree to the amendments.
§ Moved, That this House do agree with the Commons in the said amendments.—(Lord Young of Graffham.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
§ [Amendment No. 14A, as an amendment to Amendment No. 14, not moved.]
