Lords Amendment: In page 6, line 15, leave out "paragraph ( b) or ( c) of subsection (2)" and insert "subsection (4)."

1.21 a.m.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour and National Service
(Mr. Harold Watkinson)

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

This is a drafting Amendment. It arises from the Amendment to Clause 2 on Report to this House, by which the Minister's powers of exemption were transferred to a new subsection (4). In those circumstances, the reference in this Clause ought to have been amended, but by an oversight it was not, and this Lords Amendment repairs the omission.

Question put, and agreed to.
