I beg to move amendment No. 101, in

schedule 2, page 76, line 15, leave out '15 and'.

This is a minor drafting amendment. Paragraph 1 of schedule 2 lists the offences in England and Wales to which section 73 applies so that where one of the offences specified in paragraph 1 is committed in a foreign country with an equivalent offence, the offence may be tried in a domestic court. At present, sub-paragraph (a) refers to offences under clauses 6 to 15 and 17. The amendment simply makes that reference neater by changing it to offences under clauses 6 to 17. The amendment makes no change to the substance of the Bill.

Amendment agreed to.

Schedule 2, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 75 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
