    I beg to move amendment No. 34, in page 9, line 9, leave out 'regional or islands council' and insert

    'council of any region or islands area which lies wholly or in pan within that area'.
    The amendment brings the definition of "traffic authority" in Scotland into line with that in England and Wales. There is only one Scottish traffic area, which has several regional and island councils in it. The Bill might be read as implying that there are several traffic areas but only one council in each. The amendment will avoid any such reading.

    Amendment agreed to.
