§ The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Leon Brittan)
I beg to move amendment No. 1, in page 1, line 11, at end insert 'and'
§ Mr. Deputy Speaker (Sir Paul Dean)
With this it will be convenient to take Government amendments Nos. 2 to 8 and 10 to 15.
§ Mr. Brittan
These are all consequential amendments which reflect the deletion in Committee of the second set of conditions, as they are called, in clauses 1 and 3. The second set of conditions comprises the conditions under which a person could qualify as an overseas elector if he 415 had left the United Kingdom before he reached voting age. As those have been deleted, it would be appropriate to delete the matters referred to in the amendments.
Amendment agreed to.
Amendments made: No. 2, in page 1, line 13, leave out '(age apart)'.
No. 3, in page 1, line 14, leave out from 'citizen' to end of line 16.
No. 4, in page 2, line 6, leave out'one of the following sets of'and insert 'the following'.
No. 5, in page 2, line 7, leave out'The first set of conditions is'and insert 'Those conditions are'.—[Mr. Britton.]
