HL Deb 29 June 1982 vol 432 cc178-9

22 Clause 32, page 20, line 6, leave out Clause 32.

The Lord Chancellor

My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 22. With this amendment I group Amendments Nos. 24, 50 and 60. These amendments together substitute a new clause for Clause 28 and make consequential changes in the transitional provisions. The clause prevents a party who has obtained a foreign judgment from starting a fresh action in England and Wales or Northern Ireland. Provided the judgment is entitled to recognition, his remedy is to enforce the judgment itself. The changes made in the revised clause are intended purely to clarify its effect. I beg to move.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said amendment.—(The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
