I beg to move, in page 45, line 32, after "person," to insert:

"resident or appearing to be resident."
We discussed this in Committee, and this is the suggestion of my right hon. and learned Friend the Attorney-General.

I would just like to say "Thank you" because this Amendment adopts a suggestion which I put forward. I originally tabled an Amendment to insert the word "resident" after "person" in this Clause. The Attorney-General then moved an Amendment to insert the word "responsible" before the word "person," and I then further suggested that we should have both words. It now emerges that the word "resident" is to have the words:

"or appearing to be resident"
added on to it. I think that is a further improvement, and I am grateful to the hight hon. Gentleman for making it.

Amendment agreed to.
