New Clause 4 - Criminal Records Bureau checks
Gender Recognition Bill [Lords]
Mr David Lammy (Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Department for Constitutional Affairs; Tottenham, Labour)
It would be remiss of me if I did not thank my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. On Second Reading, some important questions were raised about pensions. Those issues did not arise in the other place. I am grateful for the way in which my hon. Friend dealt with them in her usual way to—I think—the satisfaction of the Committee.
I also put on record my thanks for the work of the Joint Committee on Human Rights, and particularly the work of my hon. Friends the Members for Birmingham, Selly Oak and for St. Helens, South (Mr. Woodward) and of the hon. Member for Oxford, West and Abingdon.
