My Lords, I beg to move Amendments Nos. 91 to 93 en bloc, and to speak to Amendment No. 97. These are minor drafting amendments which do not affect the intended application of Clause 68. They are consequential upon the Transport Act 1980, which was passed this Session. I beg to move.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said amendments.—( The Earl of Mansfield.)

My Lords, does changing "holder" of a public service vehicle licence to "operator of a PSV licence lighten the onus at all upon the driver?

My Lords, these amendments have no effect upon the application.

On Question, Motion agreed to.
