I beg to move amendment No. 194, in clause 35, page 23, line 35, leave out subsection (7) and insert—

‘(7) A person is subject to a relevant disqualification if—

(a) he is included in a list maintained under the law of Scotland, Northern Ireland, or any other country or territory which the Secretary of State specifies by order, approved by resolution of both Houses of Parliament, as corresponding to a barred list; or

(b) he has been charged or convicted of a criminal offence in a country other than the United Kingdom which, if committed in the United Kingdom, would have led to him being barred or considered for barring.’.
