Volume 116: debated on Tuesday 12 May 1987

I beg to move amendment No. 9, in page 26, line 26, leave out 'enforcement of confiscation orders' and insert 'taking of action'.

With this it will be convenient to take Government amendments Nos. 10, 11 and 12.

Hon. Members will recall that in Committee we inserted a new clause, now clause 32, dealing with the enforcement in a designated country of confiscation orders made by the High Court. However, following discussions that the Home Office has held with several countries, we now realise that the clause, as drafted, will not be sufficiently flexible to cater for the various types of agreement that may be reached. This group of amendments effects the necessary changes to make the clause more flexible.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendments made: No. 10, in page 26, line 27, after 'country', insert

'in consequence of the making of a restraint order or of a confiscation order'.

No. 11, in line 29, leave out 'of the enforcement of' and insert

'arising out of action taken in that country with a view to satisfying'.

No. 12, in line 30, leave out 'in that country'.— [Mr. Lang.]
