I beg to move amendment No. 13, in

clause 11, page 5, line 30, leave out 'he guesses' and insert

'participants are required to guess'.

This is merely a drafting amendment. Its purpose is to clarify that clause 11 does not apply to knowledge competitions. The amendment makes it clear that the clause applies only to such competitions where all participants are required to guess or predict the answer.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 11, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
