Amendments made: No. 126, in page 113, line 11, after 'passengers', insert

No. 127, in page 113, line 20, leave out from 'that' to end of line 24.

No. 129, in page 114, line 14, leave out from 'considers' to end of line 15 and insert 'appropriate'.

No. 130, in page 115, line 2, leave out from '113' to end of line 10 and insert—

'(1) of the Road Traffic Act 1972 (licensing authority for Part IV of that Act), there shall be substituted—
  • (a) for the words "The person who is the chairman of the traffic commissioners" the words "The traffic commissioner"; and
  • (b) for the words from "including" to "duty" the words "shall exercise the function".'.
  • No. 131, in page 117, line 20, leave out from 'and' to the end of line 23 and insert

    'for the word "their" shall be substituted the word "his".'.— [Mr. David Mitchell.]

    I beg to move amendment No. 132, in page 117 leave out lines 35 and 36.

    This is a minor drafting amendment. There is in fact no need to change the word "commissioners" to "com-missioner" in section 62 of the Public Passenger Vehicles 1981 which Act relates to PSV driver licensing in the metropolitan traffic area since that section is repealed in Schedule 7.

    Amendment agreed to.
