Clause 87, page 63, line 43, leave out '(1)(c)' and insert '(1)(b)(ii) or (3)(b)'.

Lord Rodger of Earlsferry

My Lords, Clause 87 consolidates Section 128 of the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1975 as amended by Section 30 of the Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 1995. The consolidation has failed to reproduce the amendment made at subsection (3) of Section 30 of the 1995 Act, which is consequential on the change made earlier in Section 30.

The amendment is pure consolidation. I can advise your Lordships that the noble and learned Lord, Lord Lloyd of Berwick, the chairman of the Joint Committee on Consolidation Bills, is content that it is pure consolidation. I beg to move that the House do agree with the Commons in their amendment.

Moved, That the House do agree with the Commons in their amendment.—(Lord Rodger of Earlsferry.)

On Question Motion agreed to.
