Lords Amendment: No. 19A, in page 12, line 15, leave out from beginning to "together" in line 16 and insert:
"(6) The following provisions of this Act, namely—section 2, except subsections (4A) to (4E);subsections (7) and (10) below;
Part II of Schedule 1, together with subsection (3) above so far as it relates to that Part;paragraph 13, 22 and 23 of that Schedule:paragraphs 3 and 5 of Schedule 5;".
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendments.
With this we are to take Lords Amendments Nos. 20 and 21.
Amendments 19A and 20 deal with the commencement provisions of the Bill. Their effect is to add a number of minor provisions to the list of those already in the Bill which are to come into force on Royal Assent, instead of two weeks later.Amendment 21 is merely a drafting amendment to leave out an unnecessary reference in subsection (8) to subsection (7).
Questions put and agreed to.
Subsequent Lords amendments agreed to.

They add to the list of the Bill's provisions which extend to the Isles without the need for an order, to take account of the additional private sector provisions which were added to the Bill on Report.The Government amendments are consequential on the re-insertion of Clause 10.
