Criminal Justice Bill — 2 Apr 2003 at 14:30

I beg to move amendment No. 166, in page 4, line 36, leave out clause 6.

The clause is somewhat surprising in that it removes the duty on the custody officer under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 to make a record of the property of detained persons when taking them into custody. We had an interesting debate in the Standing Committee, and I am especially grateful for the contribution made by the hon. Member for Woking (Mr. Malins), whom we miss today. He clearly stated the arguments for not removing that duty on custody officers.

Question put, That the amendment be made:-

The House divided: Ayes 166, Noes 291.
