I beg to move amendment 4, in clause 17, page 9, line 36, leave out from “contains” to end of line 36 and insert—

“() in Part 1, consequential amendments relating to the provision made by sections 7 and 8;

() in Part 2—

(i) minor amendments relating to the licensing of fishing boats, and

(ii) consequential amendments relating to the provision made by sections 9 to16;

() in Part 3, transitional provision relating to the provision made by sections 9 to16.”

This amendment would ensure that Clause 17 accurately describes the contents of Schedule 3, if the proposed Government amendments to that Schedule are made.

With this it will be convenient to discuss the following:

Clause stand part.

Government amendments 7 to 9.

Government amendment 4 is simply a technical amendment to ensure that clause 17 accurately describes the contents of schedule 3, which makes consequential amendments to existing legislation. The relevant legislation is the Sea Fish Industry Act 1962, the Sea Fisheries Act 1968, the Fishery Limits Act 1976, designation orders made under that Act, and the Sea Fish (Conservation) Act 1967 and orders made under that Act.

Amendment 4 agreed to.

Clause 17, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Schedule 3
