HC Deb 11 February 1965 vol 706 cc681-2
Mr. John Morris

I beg to move, in page 11, line 35, at the end to insert: and sub-paragraph (ii) of the said section 5(3)(a) shall cease to have effect". I would suggest that we should take with this one Amendment No. 51, in the Second Schedule, page 24, line 10, column 3, at the end to insert: "Section 5(3)(a)(ii)".

Mr. Speaker

Yes, if that is agreeable to the House.

Mr. Morris

First, I must make an apology to the House. Some confusion arose when you called Amendment No. 21, in Clause 4, Mr. Speaker, in page 5, line 29, to leave out from the beginning to "unless" in line 32 and insert: (7) Section 5(1)(c) of the Act of 1959 shall not apply to any claim such as is mentioned in subsection (6) of this section. That Amendment is consequential to the two Amendments with which I am now dealing. I thought it my duty to tell the House at the earliest opportunity how the situation arose.

This is a drafting Amendment to remove a provision of the 1959 Act, which is no longer required. It has arisen because claims made more than 10 years after the occurrence must now be made, under the Bill, to the Minister. The provision in the 1959 Act requiring a licensee who receives such a claim to give notice to the Minister is no longer required.

Amendment agreed to.
