On a point of order, Mr. Morris. I understand that it would be convenient and appropriate to discuss schedule 13 while debating whether clause 82 should stand part of the Bill. The clause is short and the meat of the argument is to be found within the schedule. The amendment refers to the schedule. I would not anticipate two separate debates.

The Chair is happy to accede to that request, as long as all parties are agreed that that course should be followed. It seems that there is no disagreement. That being so, we shall take schedule 13 with clause 82.
