Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill — Commons Reasons and Amendments — 23 Apr 2012 at 21:48

Motion G

Moved by Lord McNally

That this House do not insist on its Amendment 168 to which the Commons have disagreed for their Reason 168A, do not insist on its Amendments 169 and 240 and do agree with the Commons in their Amendments 240A and 240B.

168A Because it would alter the financial arrangements made by the Commons, and the Commons do not offer any further Reason, trusting that this reason may be deemed sufficient.
