HL Deb 08 November 1989 vol 512 cc801-2

168 Clause 43, page 41, line 4, leave out subsection (6).

8.15 p.m.

The Lord Chancellor

My Lords, I beg to move that the House do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 168. With this amendment I speak also to Amendments Nos. 184, 185 and 266.

These amendments tighten up the definition of "voluntary home" and "voluntary organisation". Amendment No. 168, by removing a n ambiguous reference, clarifies that controlled and assisted community homes are not voluntary homes and so Part VII and Schedule 5 do not apply in relation to them. Such a home is subject to the provisions of Schedule 4. Amendment No. 184 provides that a school cannot be a voluntary home. Amendment No. 185 excludes community homes from the definition of voluntary homes. Amendment No. 266, for the purposes of the Act, restricts 1he definition of voluntary organisation to the one contained in Clause 75(1).

Moved, That the House do agree with the Commons in the said amendment.—(The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
