Order. I cannot add a great deal to the ruling that has already been given from the Chair. We are operating under a programme motion, and the Chair determines which amendments can be taken. Rulings have been made, to which I shall add by saying that I am unable to accept for Division the new clause tabled by Pete Wishart.

Amendment made: 142, page 44, line 24 at end insert—

' (1) Schedule 1 (parliamentary elections rules) is amended as follows.

(2) In rule 6 (nomination of candidates), in paragraph (2)(a) after "names," there is inserted "and".

(3) In rule 14A (correction of minor errors)—

(a) in paragraph (1), after "nomination paper" there is inserted "or home address form";

(b) in paragraph (2), after sub-paragraph (b) there is inserted—

"(c) in the home address form, errors as to the information mentioned in rule 6(5)(b)."

(4) In the Appendix of forms, in the Form of nomination paper, in the first table following the words "candidate at the said election", the final column (home address) is omitted."'.— (Dr. Julian Lewis.)
