I beg to move amendment No. 24, in page 4, line 19, leave out from ‘Act' to end of line 22 and insert

‘is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard scale.'.

With this it will be convenient to consider amendment No. 25.

We have already discussed the penalties. I welcome the fact that the fine level is, at least, to remain at that which I envisaged originally and that the changes to imprisonment relate more to the assault side than to the impeding side.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment made: No. 25, in page 4, line 23, leave out subsections (2) and (3).—[Mr. Alan Williams.]

Clause 6, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 7 disagreed to.
