I beg to move amendment 436, in clause 127, page 73, line 33, leave out ‘or will’ and insert

‘, will be or may reasonably be expected to’.

This technical amendment ensures that the relevant definition is complete in so far as it relates to qualifications which persons may reasonably be expected to seek to obtain. See also amendments 457 and 505 which achieve the same purpose in relation to similar definitions.

With this it will be convenient to discuss Government amendments 457 and 505.

These technical amendments ensure that particular definitions are consistent in so far as they relate to qualifications that persons may reasonably be expected to obtain. On that basis, I hope that members of the Committee will agreed to them.

Amendment 436 agreed to.

Clause 127, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
