I beg to move amendment No. 8, in page 47, line 35, after 'this Act' insert

'(including any provision of Part III as applied by regulations made under section 41 of this Act) or under regulations made under section 42 of this Act'.

With this it will be convenient to discuss Government amendment No. 9.

These are technical amendments. They extend the scope of clause 49 and of section 37 of the Aviation Security Act 1982 in respect of regulations relating to air and sea cargo agents and regulations requiring the reporting of aviation and maritime security occurrences. If an offence under any of these regulations is committed by a body corporate, and with the connivance of, or because of the neglect of, a director or other similar senior officer of the company, that person will also be guilty of the offence.

Amendment agreed to.
