Emergency Workers (Protection) Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 2:30 pm on 26th April 2006.
Alert me about debates like this
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.
