§ CONSECUTIVE TERMS AND AGGREGATE PERIODS OF DETENTION
Lords amendment: No. 9, in page 5, line 15, leave out from "that" to " ; and" in line 17 and insert
the only appropriate method of dealing with him is to pass a custodial sentence on him.
§ Mr. Mayhew
I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.
The amendment harmonises the wording of clauses 3, 4 and 5. Clauses 3 and 5 require a court, in dealing with an offender, to be satisfied thatthe only appropriate method of dealing with him is to pass a custodial sentence on him".Clause 4, on the other hand, expresses the same provision in the wordsa custodial sentence would be appropriate for the offence.The amendment deletes those words from clause 4 and replaces them with the expression used in clauses 3 and 5, which are in negative terms.
§ Question put and agreed to.
