I beg to move, in page 82, line 11, at the beginning, to insert:

"Notwithstanding the provisions of Part XV of this Act."
We have put the Amendment on the Paper to clear the air, because we are dubious that the apprehended-danger Clause, about which we talked so much in the Committee may be compromised by Part XV of the Bill. We do not want that Clause to be mixed up with the appeal tribunal procedure, and we want to clarify the position. Perhaps the Attorney-General will be able to assure us that the apprehended-danger Clause is paramount. If we get an assurance that it is paramount and away from the tribunal procedure, I shall be quite satisfied to withdraw the Amendment.

I can give the assurance that the Amendment proposed is unnecessary, and the assurance for which the hon. Gentleman asks.

In view of what the Attorney-General has said, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Amendments made: In page 82, line 16, leave out from "the," to "a," in line 17, and insert "responsible person."

In line 19, leave out from the first "the," to end of the line, and insert "responsible person."

In line 25, leave out "upon the owner or manager of," and insert "with respect to."—[ Mr. Joynson-Hicks.]
