72 Clause 40, page 31, line 6, leave out borstal training or'.

My Lords, I beg to move that this House cloth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 72. Perhaps I could speak to Amendments Nos. 148 to 154, which are to Schedule 7, when moving this amendment.

These are drafting amendments, necessary to take account of the abolition of borstal training in Northern Ireland by Orders in Council, which took effect on 1st October this year. Amendment No. 72 deletes the reference to borstal training in Clause 40(2)(b)(iii). Amendments Nos. 148 to 154 make the necessary changes to paragraphs 7 and 10 of Schedule 7 to reflect the amendments to the Criminal Justice Act 1961 made by one of the Northern Ireland Orders.

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

On Question, Motion agreed to.
