Mr Nicholas Winterton (Macclesfield, Conservative)

May I welcome all members of the Committee to the penultimate sitting before we have a short break? I regret that I will not be in the Chair this afternoon, so I wish everyone, particularly those who have been working extremely hard during the sittings we have had so far, a restful and enjoyable spring recess. We sat late on Tuesday, but I am sure that we will make further progress today.Clause 170 Policies of life insurance etc: miscellaneous amendments
