Report received.

Clause 1 [Code of Practice for Horse-drawn Vehicles]:

Lord Beaumont of Whitley

moved the amendment: Page 2, line 1, after "lay" insert "the Code or The noble Lord said: My Lords, this is a small tidying-up Bill and a small tidying-up amendment. It will not have escaped those of your Lordships who have been perusing the Bill avidly that Clause 1(3) deals with making a code of practice for horse-drawn vehicles and alterations to them. However., the corollary of that is that the Secretary of State must lay the alterations before both Houses of Parliament. It would be sensible that he should lay both the code of practice and the alterations before Parliament. I beg to move.

On Question, amendment agreed to.
