I beg to move amendment No. 30, in page 23, line 23, leave out from `section' to '(at' in line 24 and insert

`32 of the Magistrates' Courts Act 1980'.
This is a technical amendment which does not affect the substance of clause 22. It amends subsection (2)(a), which defines what is meant by the "statutory maximum" fine with respect to England and Wales. The clause, as drafted, refers to the provisions of the Criminal Law Act 1977. However, that Act has been repealed, and the relevant provisions now appear in the Magistrates' Courts Act 1980. The amendment accordingly deletes the outdated reference and substitutes the new one.

Amendment agreed to.
