HC Deb 11 July 1975 vol 895 c977

Lords Amendment: No. 4, in page 2, line 22, leave out first "or".

Mr. Deputy Speaker

With this we can also take Lords Amendment No. 5, in page 2, line 22, leave out second "or" and No. 6, in page 2, line 23, after "1912" insert: the Pet Animals Act 1951, the Animal Boarding Establishments Act 1963 or the Breeding of Dogs Act 1973".

Mr. Doig

I beg to move, That the House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.

The first two amendments are drafting amendments. The purpose of Lords Amendment No. 6 is to continue the practice that has grown up in recent years of making provision in Acts regulating the protection and keeping of animals for courts to cancel licences held by a person under the Act if he has been convicted of an offence under the Act or under certain other Acts.

Question put and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords amendments agreed to.
