Alert me about debates like this

I hope that we can deal with this amendment rather more quickly. Amendment 1 is a minor and technical amendment to tidy up the drafting of section 7, which deals with local consultation on the marking and lighting of the wind farm. The amendment would not alter the effect of section 7 in any way but would simply remove a redundant cross-reference to section 4. The purpose of section 7 is to require the Commissioners of Northern Lighthouses to consult local yachting interests and others on proposals for the lighting and marking of the wind farm. That is what will be done.

I move amendment 1.

I have had no requests to speak from members or from the minister, so I assume that John Home Robertson has nothing to add in summation of the debate that has not taken place.

Amendment 1 agreed to.

Amendment 4 moved—[Mr John Home Robertson]—and agreed to.
