Northern Ireland (Sentences) Bill — Applications — 15 Jun 1998

Dominic Grieve MP, Beaconsfield did not vote.

Considered in Committee .

I beg to move amendment No. 45, in page 1, line 7, leave out

'and one of them shall be appointed chairman'

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Amendment made: No. 18, page 1, line 18, leave out 'any jurisdiction' and insert 'the United Kingdom'.-- [Mr. MacKay.]

Clause 1, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clause 2 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

I beg to move amendment No. 50, page 1, line 24, leave out 'shall' and insert 'may'.

The Chairman:

With this, it will be convenient to discuss the following amendments: No. 51, page 1, line 24, after 'application', insert 'only'.

Such an addition to the Bill would not be beneficial and is, therefore, unnecessary.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

I beg to move amendment No. 36--

The Chairman:

Order. On a technicality, the hon. Gentleman cannot move amendment No. 36 before amendment No. 34, because amendment No. 36 is consequential on amendment No. 34. If he wants a Division to take account of that, I advise him to move amendment No. 34.

Amendment proposed: No. 34, in clause 3, page 1, line 26, leave out

Question put, That the amendment be made:--

The Committee divided: Ayes 7, Noes 257.
