Amendment 1 is a technical amendment that is required as a result of an amendment to the bill at stage 2. The stage 2 amendment added to the relevant enforcement actions, which can count towards an application for a tobacco and nicotine vapour product banning order. The purpose of the amendment is to make it clear that it is not a requirement that at least one offence must have been committed under chapters 1 and 2 of the Tobacco and Primary Medical Services (Scotland) Act 2010 before a sheriff can be satisfied that a banning order can be issued. That will ensure that a banning order can be applied where three relevant enforcement actions pertain to convictions under section 92(1)(b) or (c) of the Trade Marks Act 1994.

I move amendment 1.

Amendment 1 agreed to.
