On Question, Motion agreed to.


589Page 219, line 8, leave out sub-paragraph (4) and insert—
("(4) In a case where the investigator—
(a) has reported that a complaint is well-founded, or
(b) has criticised the Authority in his report,
the investigator may include in his report a recommendation to the Authority that it takes steps to remedy the matter complained of including, if appropriate, by making an ex-gratia payment.").
The Commons agreed to this amendment with the following amendment—
589ALine 2, leave out from ("(4)") to end of line 7 and insert
("If the investigator considers that a complaint of which he has been notified under sub-paragraph (3) ought to be investigated, he may proceed as if the complaint had been referred to him under the complaints scheme.
(4A) The complaints scheme must confer on the investigator the power to recommend, if he thinks it appropriate, that the Authority—
(a) makes a compensatory payment to the complainant,
(b) remedies the matter complained of,
or takes both of those steps.").

Lord McIntosh of Haringey: My Lords, I beg to move that the House do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 589A to Lords Amendment No.589.

I hope that noble Lords on all sides will welcome the consensus that we have been able to reach on the final amendment to this Bill. The Government will agree to Amendment No. 589A, which was moved from the Opposition Front Bench in another place and which amends Amendment No. 589. Amendment No. 589A restores the power of the investigator to investigate in accordance with the complaints scheme any complaint of which he has been notified by the authority but which the authority has decided not to investigate. This is an amendment to a Lords amendment carried on a Division despite my assurances that we supported the principle that the investigator should have power to make ex-gratia payments. The amendment removes an anomaly which we believe was not intended.

Moved, That this House do agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 589A to Lords Amendment No. 589.—(Lord McIntosh of Haringey.)
