Lord Brabazon of Tara

My Lords, with the leave of the House, I beg to move that this House do agree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 38 to 41 en bloc. These amendments make it clear that pilots who are already employed, as for example by the Shetland and Orkney Islands councils, will not be eligible for the pilots' compensation scheme. Nor will any other pilot be eligible unless he is surplus to the CHAs requirements. The amendments also provide that the compensation payments may be made in ways which will allow the pilots to secure full benefit from them. I beg to move.

Moved, That this House do agree with the Commons in the said amendments.—(Lord Brabazon of Tara.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
