'(1A) The Education Acts 1944 to 1981, the Education (Fees and Awards) Act 1983, the Education (Grants and Awards) Act 1984 and this Act, except sections 4 and 5 above, may be cited together as the Education Acts 1944 to 1985.
(1B) This Act, except sections 4 and 5 above, shall be construed as one with the Education Act 1944.'.— [Mr. Brooke.]

I beg to move amendment No. 3, in page 6, line 12, leave out subsection (2).

The amendment removes the privilege amendment inserted by the Lords to avoid infringing the Commons privilege. Although we do not expect any increase in public expenditure as a result of the Bill's passage, it is nevertheless necessary to remove the subsection in accordance with usual custom.

Amendment agreed to.
