Amendment made: No. 148, in page 56, line 32, at end insert—

'(2A) But if section 94(6A) applies the recoverable amount is such amount as—

(a) the court believes is just, but

(b) does not exceed the amount found under subsection (1) or (2) (as the case may be).'.—[Mr. Foulkes.]

Mr. Foulkes: I beg to move amendment No. 149, in page 56, line 36, after '297', insert '(2)'.

Mr. Carmichael: On a point of order, Mr. O'Brien. I seek your guidance. I heard you refer to amendment No. 148. I understood that that was an amendment to clause 94, with which we have already dealt.

The Chairman: We debated Government amendment No. 148 with Government amendment No. 145, but it amends clause 96. It has already been debated, so I called it formally and it has been approved. We come now to amendment No. 149.

Mr. Foulkes: This is a technical amendment that is designed to ensure that the correct cross-reference is to clause 297(2), which deals with the forfeiture of cash.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 96, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
