I move amendment No. 8:

In page 4, to delete lines 3 and 4 and substitute the following:

“2. (1) Any person who distributes, publishes, transmits, sells, makes available, advertises or threatens to distribute, publish, transmit, sell, make available or advertise an intimate image of another person—”.

The purpose of amendment No. 8 is to strengthen the law on the distribution or publication of any images or making them available. I have just lost my notes on the amendment so I cannot speak further on it. The intention is to increase the definitions that are required within the Bill and to make that workable.
