I beg to move amendment No. 6, in page 3, line 13 leave out 'against' and insert 'under'.

With this, it will be convenient to take amendments Nos. 7, 8, 9 and 10.

These are consequential amendments that are mainly technical. Two amendments are grammatical.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendments made: No. 7, in page 3 leave out line 115. No. 8, in page 3 leave out lines 17 to 21.

No. 9, in page 3, line 23 leave out

`triable either on indictment or summarily' and insert 'so triable'.

'() Include provisions under which a person guilty of an offence under the regulations which is triable only summarily is liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding £1,000 or such smaller amount as may be specified in the regulations.'

No. 11, in page 3, line 33 at end add—

'(2) In section 123(2) of the principal Act (which applies subsections (1) of that section to orders requiring particulars of food ingredients) after the word "section", in the first place where it occurs, there shall be inserted the words ", other than paragraphs (e) and (eb),".'—[Mr. Norman Atkinson.]
