42 Clause 17, page 16, line 3, leave out from '(2)' to 'an' in line 4.

My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 42. The amendment was made in another place in response to an Opposition proposal. Some honourable Members in another place were concerned that as drafted the clause might create the possibility of double jeopardy. They wished to ensure that we accepted the amendment. I hope that it meets with your Lordships' acceptance.

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

On Question, Motion agreed to.
