HL Deb 14 July 1999 vol 604 c477

99 Clause 60, page 34, line 23, leave out from ("(which") to ("has") in line 25 and insert ("makes provision about the enforcement of community orders by the Crown Court)")

Lord Falconer of Thoroton

My Lords, I beg to move that the House do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 99. I wish to speak also to Amendments Nos. 100, 195, 196 and 235. These are minor amendments relating to Clause 60 and Schedule 9, which deal with community orders made by the Crown Court.

Amendment No. 195 removes an unnecessary provision in paragraph 9 of Schedule 9. Paragraph 9(2) inserts references in paragraph 8(1)(a) of Schedule 2 to the Criminal Justice Act 1991 into three other statutes. Paragraph 8(1)(a) deals with applications to the Crown Court to revoke community orders which the Crown Court itself has made. The insertions are unnecessary because the three other statutes in question provide only for magistrates' courts to make community orders, not the Crown Court.

Amendments Nos. 100, 196 and 235 move Clause 60, Schedule 9 and the related repeals to different points in the Bill to give it a better overall structure. Amendment No. 99 is a drafting amendment consequential to this. I commend the amendment to the House.

Moved, That the House do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 99.—(Lord Falconer of Thoroton.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
