§ The Lord Chancellor
My Lords, I beg to move that the House do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 163. In speaking to this amendment I speak also to Amendment No. 246. These amendments are to make clear that where a police constable is authorised by a court warrant to assist a person to exercise certain powers he may use reasonable force if necessary.
§ Moved, That the House do agree with the Commons in the said amendment. —(The Lord Chancellor.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to.
