I beg to move amendment No. 35, in page 19, line 5, leave out '219(2) of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1970' and insert '617(2) of the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988'. This is a technical amendment that updates the reference to the Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1970 to take account of the ICTA Bill now in passage through the House.

Amendment agreed to.

I beg to move amendment No. 36, in page 22, line 18, at end insert 'of 15 days'.

The amendment has been drafted so that there can be no doubt in anyone's mind that income support paid during a trade dispute is not recoverable after the person involved in the dispute has returned to work.

Amendment agreed to.

I beg to move amendment No. 37, in page 22, line 20, leave out 'the' and insert 'any'.

The amendment ensures that the recovery of the payment referred to when I discussed Government amendment No. 36 shall be recoverable from any prescribed person, employer or claimant, other than the more limited "the prescribed person", and returns us to the wording in the 1986 Act.

Amendment agreed to.
