I beg to move amedment No. 47, in page 37, line 3, leave out paragraph (a).

It will be convenient to discuss at the same time Government amendments Nos. 48 and 49.

In Committee, I undertook to consider whether it was necessary under present circumstances to give the Lord Advocate an order-making power to direct that the arrestment provision to be introduced by clause 49 should not apply. I now take the view that such a power is not necessary, and this series of amendments removes the order-making power and makes consequential drafting changes.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendments made: No. 48, in page 37, line 5, leave out paragraph (b).

No. 49, in page 37, line 14, leave out paragraph (e).— [Mr. John MacKay.]
