Lord Campbell of Croy
My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendments Nos. 7, 8, 9 and 10. Perhaps it may be for the convenience of the House that these amendments be moved en bloc. These are technical and make the appropriate changes to subsection (3)(a) in Clause 10 as a consequence of the introduction of paragraphs (a) and (b) in subsection (3). Your Lordships will recall that it was in this House that those subsections were introduced by amendment. These consequential amendments are therefore necessary.
§ Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said amendments.—(Lord Campbell of Croy.)
§ Lord Northfield
My Lords, I have only a brief point to raise. If the Minister cannot give an answer tonight, perhaps he will write to me because the issue is an important one. Can we have it clear that when these clauses are put into effect the names of the people who are approved by the Red Deer Commission for shooting in the close season will be available for bona fide purposes?—in other words, that we must again have access to the names of people who are given this rather special exemption for shooting in the close season.
Looking ahead to Amendment No. 11, so that I need not rise on that, will the noble Lord kindly see that some news reaches us as to whether the people who are approved persons for shooting at night are put on a list which can be inspected for bona fide purposes? We cannot be too careful in this area. This is an open situation, and we must make sure that a list of names can be properly inspected and checked. If it is impossible to give the answer tonight, I quite understand that it might be given on another occasion.
