Report received.

Clause 1 [ Marking of detonators]:

moved Amendment No. 1:

Page 1, line 9, leave out ("intended").

On Question, Amendment agreed to.

Page 2, line 38, leave out subsection (3) and insert

On Question, Amendment agreed to.

Then, Standing Order No. 43 having been suspended (pursuant to Resolution of 13th July), Bill read 3a , and passed, and sent to the Commons.
