54 Clause 26, page 22, line 36, leave out 'date' and insert 'time'.

My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 54. The purpose of Amendments Nos. 54, 59 and 64 is to make clear that the right for the accused to challenge routine evidence remains available, if there are special circumstances, right up to the moment when the trial starts. I hope that the House will welcome these amendments as extending slightly the opportunity for challenge. I beg to move.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said amendment—( Lord Mackay of Clashfern.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
