Nursery Education: England And Wales

Lords amendment: No. 20, in page 25, line 42, after "8" insert "(1)( a)".

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

This is a purely technical drafting amendment. The clause at present refers to
"section 8 of the Education Act 1944".
The amendment makes it clear that the reference is to section 8 (1) (a). The amendment was first moved by a Member of another place in pursuant of greater clarity, and the Government accepted it in the spirit in which it was offered. I do not think that this is a contentious matter.

Question put and agreed to.

Lords amendment No. 21 agreed to.
