I beg to move amendment No. 341, in page 179, line 14, leave out

'by virtue of section 267'

and insert

'under section 267 (including one made by virtue of section 276)'.

The amendment makes a technical change to the definition of ''recovery order'' given in clause 310 in order to achieve greater clarity in the drafting. ''Recovery order'' is currently defined as

''an order made by virtue of section 267''.

That is intended to include the recovery order made in

''terms agreed by the parties''

under clause 276. The amendment clarifies that point.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment made: No. 342, in page 179, line 43, at end add—

'( ) Proceedings against any person for an offence are concluded when—

(a) the person is convicted or acquitted,

(b) the prosecution is discontinued or, in Scotland, the trial diet is deserted simpliciter, or

(c) the jury is discharged without a finding'—[Mr. Bob. Ainsworth.]

Clause 310, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
