I had certainly anticipated the effect of the amendment . I take the Under-Secretary's point that it does not cover non-undertaking disqualifications. However, as I said earlier, my concerns are particularly relevant in relation to new section 9B—the exact provision that the Under-Secretary was just explaining. I am still concerned that the maximum period for disqualification is too long, but in the light of what the Under-Secretary has said, I beg to ask leave to withdraw the amendment.
Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
