I beg to move amendment No. 98, in clause 48, page 26, line 21, leave out 'not'.

The amendment would reverse the assumption inherent in clause 48, so that every person acting in the office of constable, whether they were in the police service or in SOCA, is treated the same. That seems an appropriate and admirable sentiment.
