    My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 134. This is a minor amendment which sets out the procedure for the abandonment at an early stage of appeals against sentences in summary cases. It is a useful addition to what is presently in the Bill.

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