Clause 9 — Street trading: vehicles and the internet
Adjournment (Easter, May, Whitsun, Summer, Conference, November and Christmas)
Christopher Chope (Christchurch, Conservative)
My hon. Friend is introducing this group of amendments with such expertise. In fairness to our hon. Friend Mike Freer, he indicated some time ago that the promoter was prepared to accept the amendment. I was surprised, however, by the implication in his intervention just now that it was basically a drafting error that resulted in
“in the course of business”
being left out of clause 10 whereas it was included in clause 9. If it was just a drafting error, it is surprising that the Bill has gone through the other place and through detailed consideration in Committee in this House before that error emerged.
