§ Lords amendment: No 10, in page 5, line 8, leave out "on any premises"
§ Mr. Deputy Speaker
With this it will be convenient to discuss Lords amendments Nos. 11 and 19 to 32.
§ Mr. Bright
Hon. Members will recall that on Report my hon. Friend the Member for Castle Point (Sir B. Braine) moved a series of amendments, which were accepted by the House, to ensure that R18 material could not be supplied on premises, except licensed sex shops. 607 Although "premises" has a wide meaning under clause 22, a small loophole was left, as it would not be an offence if the supply or offer were made somewhere other than on the premises—for example, outside a factory gate or at a bus station.
These amendments, which were tabled by Lord Nugent of Guildford in Committee in another place, are designed to close that chink, to make one or two associated alterations to the statutory defences in clause 12, and to make consequential changes to other parts of the Bill. I commend them to the House.
§ Question put and agreed to.
§ Lords amendment No. 11 agreed to.
