Clause 198 - Short title, commencement and extent
Licensing Bill [Lords]
Dr Kim Howells (Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Department for Culture, Media & Sport; Pontypridd, Labour)
I beg to move amendment No. 32, in
clause 198, page 108, line 33, leave out subsection (6).
The amendment removes the privilege amendment made when the Bill left another place. I understand from my vast experience of Bills that this procedure must be followed. The Bill places a charge on public funds, in so far as it reflects our intention to exempt village halls, church halls, parish halls and other community buildings, and schools from the fees associated with the aspects of the new licensing regime that relate to regulated entertainment. I do not intend to detain the Committee in further debate of the amendment.
Amendment agreed to.
Clause 198, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
Schedules 6 and 7 agreed to.
