§ Lord Lucas of Chilworth
My Lords, with the leave of the House, I beg to move that this House do agree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 14, 15 and 16 en bloc. Perhaps I should draw your Lordships' attention to a printing error on the Marshalled List in Amendment No. 16. It statesPage 42, line 43, at end insert".The last line of paragraph (b) should read:and no application has been made or leave refused".The words "has been" have to be inserted between the word "leave" and the word "refused".
These amendments clarify when the liability to make reparation for a defective product is extinguished in Scotland. They are largely technical, and I beg to move.
§ Moved, That this House do agree with the Commons in the said amendments.—(Lord Lucas of Chilworth.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
