These are drafting amendments. They arise from the concern expressed in Committee by the hon. Member for Glasgow, Garscadden (Mr. Dewar). They relate to expenses and the power of the sheriff to distribute sums consigned into court. They are essentially formal.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendments made: No. 3, in page 2, line 21, after 'obligation', insert 'in or'.

No. 4, in line 25, leave out from 'so' to 'and' in line 26 and insert

'when he was obliged to'.

No. 5, in line 30, leave out subsection (6).

No. 6, in line 12, at end insert—

'(10) The sheriff's power under subsection (9) above extends to ordering that any award of expenses of the application under this section be paid out of any sums consigned in court under subsection (2) above'.—[The Solicitor-General for Scotland.]
