Darroch Ball, in Committee, to move the following amendments:

Clause 4

In the heading to clause 4, replace prison officer (page 2, line 10) with corrections officer.

In clause 4, heading to new section 189A, replace prison officer (page 2, line 13) with corrections officer.

In clause 4, new section 189A(1) (page 2, lines 15–19), replace “prison officer” with “corrections officer” in each place.

In clause 4, new section 189A(2), replace prison officer (page 2, line 26) with corrections officer.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper replaces the term “prison officer” with “corrections officer” in the title of the Bill and in the new offence that the Bill inserts into the Crimes Act 1961. The term “prison officer” is retained in the amendment to the Summary Offences Act 1981 as that Act uses that term in other places that are not amended by the Bill.
