My Lords, this is another minor and technical amendment designed to correct a drafting inconsistency between Clause 7 and Clause 10. Clause 10(4) is intended to cover the possibility of a different level of service being appropriate to a matter that falls within the scope of Part 1 of Schedule 1-for example, legal help or legal representation. In Clause 10(4), we currently use the phrase "description of service" when our intention is simply to refer to "forms" of service as we have in Clause 7(2). The amendment simply standardises the terminology between Clause 7 and Clause 10(4). I beg to move.

Amendment 98 agreed.

Amendment 99

Moved by Lord Wallace of Tankerness

99: Clause 10, page 7, line 30, after second "the" insert "form of"

Amendment 100

Moved by Lord Beecham

100: Clause 11, page 8, line 25, leave out "may" and insert "must"
