Alert me about debates like this

I beg to move, That the House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment.

Mr. Deputy Speaker:

With this we are to take Lords amendment No. 100.

These are small but useful amendments which transfer the substance of clause 22 (2) to schedule 3, where it more properly belongs, and where it now covers the death or disability of the transport manager as well as his leaving the business or losing his good repute.

I can go into more detail if the right hon. Gentleman wishes, but this is merely to make sure that the whole operation does not suddenly become illegal because the transport manager dies when he is the only person with a certificate of professional competence. It seems to be a worthwhile objective, and I suggest that the other place has tidied up the provisions in a useful way.

Question put and agreed to.

Lords amendment No. 31 agreed to.
