Question so resolved in the negative.
Clause agreed to.
Clauses 46 to 61, by leave, taken together and agreed to.
MR HARGREAVES (5.25): I seek leave to move together the amendments circulated in my name.
MR HARGREAVES: I move:
Line 6, paragraph (1) (a), omit "if the court orders a longer period, the longer period", substitute "if the court orders another period, the other period".
Line 8, paragraph (1) (b), omit "if the court orders a longer period, the longer period", substitute "if the court orders another period, the other period".
I will be very brief because we have just about exhausted this argument. I merely reiterate that these amendments seek to allow the courts the discretion on the length of time people have to go without their licences. The legislature ought not be restricting the court in any way. These amendments merely seek to allow the court more discretion.
Clause 62 agreed to.
