Lords amendment: No. 2, in page 8, leave out lines 32 to 34.

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

With this it will be convenient to take Lords amendments Nos. 3, 4, 5 and 6.

These are quite complicated amendments. I can explain their intention at greater length if that is the desire of the House. However, I believe that hon. Members may prefer to move on to matters which have a little more blood in them. In view of certain alterations made in the other place, these are consequential amendments. Some are linked with the bringing of information to the parents of handicapped children. These amendments largely mean that the local authority may give information or direct that it be given out at times different from the times when it is going through an application for a school and appeals system. That is the only reason for these amendments.

It being Ten o'clock, consideration of the Lords amendments stood adjourned.
