I beg to move Amendment No. 44, in page 22, line 44, after 'section', to insert '(other than subsection (4))'.

Perhaps it would be convenient to discuss at the same time Amendment No. 45.

These Amendments bring into force on the passing of the Act—instead of on 16th May, 1967—the provision in subsection 33(4) repealing the requirement for sheep dogs to get a certificate of exemption from dog licence duty. If the Bill becomes law before the end of the year, this means that owners of sheep dogs will not have to apply for exemption from licence duty for the year 1967.

Amendment agreed to.

Further Amendment made: No. 45, in page 22, line 44, at end insert 'and subsection (4) shall come into force on the passing of this Act'.—[Dr. Dickson Mabon.]
