Lords amendment: No. 64, in page 49, line 15, leave out paragraph (g) and insert

"(g) in section 185(2) after "offence", insert "and shall be liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding £200"."

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

This amendment corrects an error that inadvertently occurred in relation to the revision of the fines for which section 185(2) of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1966 provides. The amendment is brought forward on that basis and I commend it to the House.

Question put and agreed to.
