Clause 18 has the same effect—raising the maximum licence period to 10 years. This time it applies to offenders aged over 21 in England and Wales, and it makes that change by amending section 281(4) of the sentencing code.

Question put and agreed to.

Clause 18 accordingly ordered to stand part of the Bill.
