I beg to move amendment No. 20, in page 3, line 17, after ‘vehicle,' insert ‘vessel,'.

Again, this is a technical amendment. We have provided protection for those who provide the coastguard service, but we overlooked the protection that is needed for the vessel in which they undertake their rescue work. This amendment remedies that shortcoming.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendments made: No. 21, in page 3, line 20, leave out subsections (2) to (4).

No. 22, in page 3, line 35, leave out subsection (6).—[Mr. Alan Williams.]

Clause 4, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 5 disagreed to.
