1. For section 17(3) of the Act of 1968 (extent) there shall be substituted the following subsection—
(3) Part I and sections 13, 14(1), 16, subsection (1) above and this subsection shall extend to Scotland as read with section 8 of and the Schedule to the Mobile Homes Act 1975, but otherwise this Act does not extend to Scotland or Northern Ireland.".
We now move into the world of Scottish law, which may be strange to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Although I am Scottish by birth, it is a total mystery to me. We are anxious that the Bill, and particularly the relevant parts of the 1968 Act, should apply to Scotland.
The amendment deals with a matter of great interest to my hon. Friends, and particularly to my right hon. Friend the Member for Renfrewshire, East (Miss Harvie Anderson). I thought that we had got the matter right on Report, but I should have known that there were bound to be second thoughts. I understand that the Scottish lawyers are satisfied that the amendment will put the Bill into correct shape.
§ Question put and agreed to.
